Guys. I'm in love. I saw this pin during my hunt for summer styles, and I just HAD to have it. Or rather, I had to make it. (No use buying a shirt that isn't made to fit my extraordinary body, amiright??) But with shockingly limited tank styles in the indie pattern market, I knew I'd have to hack my own. And where there are hacks for me, there are tutorials for you!

I reluctantly tackle the dreaded "will you hem my pants!?" request, and tutorial it anyway... because it means I get to put silly pictures of my husband on the internet. You should read it anyway - you may just learn a fancy new tailoring term!

{Wardrobe Planning} My Custom Color Palette — Free Notion

I've long believed "Custom Color Palettes" are sort of like horoscopes. They're fun to read about, fun to know, easy to "believe" if you want to - easy to discredit if you don't. I've even rolled my eyes in the past hearing people cry "I can't wear ___! I'm a cool autum!&quo
