IF I HAD TO GIVE you one reason why I dislike summer, then that reason would definitely be the merciless heat waves that raise the temperature to unbearable 40°C and transform me into an unproductive sloth. Those are the days when I forsake my usual go-getter personality and swap all potentially productive activities for lying down in bed in front of my laptop. I mean, I know I am being unproductive when I close all blinds and I end up watching 2 hours’ worth of videos with cute/adorable baby owls while thinking of all the productive things I could be doing. Still.... bless people on YouTube who do animal compilation videos. You are my heroes.

Anyway, on other days when the heat waves retreat {probably with the intent to come back even stronger} the first thing that I want to do in my free time is to make clothes, of course. Sometimes that includes making clothes fit. I know that in this age of fast and cheap consumption where people give very little attention to one thing before getting interested in another, it's a lot easier to buy new clothes rather than fix old ones. But, if the quality is good, I am not the one to throw away old clothes. With small modifications such as changing buttons or taking it in, you can increase the longevity of any piece.

I got this golden silk top from my grandma and it was three sizes too big for me. But I liked the fabric and the design so much, I just had to find a way to incorporate it into my daily looks. A little increasing of the darts depth coupled with a lot of side-seams taking in resulted in the vest-top you see in the photos.

How do you like it?
