Maybe it’s a little too late in the year to be thinking of summer dresses with exposed backs, or extreme 80’s tank tops with giant arm holes… but I’m very excited for warmer weather!

DIY Cage Bralette

Because I made this little beauty: …and now you can too! Normally I don’t wear bralettes, but lately I’ve been bitten by the Nasty Gal/Brandy Melville style bug and I’m stepping out of my comfort zone with this. Nasty Gal and Dolls Kill sell this very popular caged bralette/swimsuit top for around $75 or more, but I didn’t want to spend that much for just a bra. This is my first time sewing a bikini/lingerie type piece and I’m glad I did…. it turned out amazingly well for my first try.

I spent $5.22 for 10 yards of elastic from Etsy, $0.99 for the black thread (I had just recently run out), and $2 for some stretchy little girl’s dance shorts at Goodwill… for a total of $8.21. What you’ll need: Stretchy black fabric for the two chest piecesAt least 5 yards of 5/8″ fold over elastic, or “FOE.” Cut it up! Sew Liberated - Myla Tank Sewing Pattern.

I noticed something immediately upon arriving in Austin.In this city, there are no plastic bags.

How to Make Your Own Reusable Tote bag

At most stores, it’s not even an option – if you do need a bag, you have to purchase one, and it’s usually a brown paper bag or some sort of reusable bag. I’m sure it’s like this in other cities too, but Philly wasn’t there yet, and I love that Austin has taken this environmentally friendly stance. As a result, I find myself bringing tote bags everywhere, in case I stop for groceries or pick anything up on my travels. I had some vintage fabric on hand and decided to make my own tote bag – it’s so cute I may even use it as a purse! I used this floral vintage fabric, but this tutorial would work with pretty much any fabric – canvas, an older t-shirt or tapestry, or anything you have on hand that’s about the size of a pillow case. Start by cutting a piece of fabric in the shape pictured above. You’ll notice that the fold narrows as you reach the inner curve of the top of the tote.
