Fashionably MADE: Meet my sister!

As both a craft and fashion lover, last year I was looking for a way to combine my two passions and turn it into a regular blog series. I came up with “Fashionably MADE” which would showcase an outfit that incorporated at least one handmade item. The item was usually made by me and on occasion, by another crafter. I’m happy to report that Fashionably MADE is back!This is a blouse that I made with my sister over the holidays (that's her wearing it!). Her style is classic basics with a dash of flare. She is in the process of expanding her blog The Modern Girl Guide to include recipes, home décor and fashion. She’s ADORABLE.Blazer:Banana Republic , Jeans:Banana Republic, Blouse: By Stacy and Candice

The blouse is cute but looks best when worn under a sweater or blazer. We didn’t follow a pattern and the end result was – well, less than perfect. But that's ok :)I think my favorite part of the entire project though was the time spent working together. There were lots of laughs and happy memories made along the way!

P.S.: My next Fashionably MADE post will include faux fur and leather. Get excited!
