I have a really fun review and tutorial for you today. I know I said I wasn’t going to do anymore tutorials, but this one was so quick that I just had to share it. I received the ASOS Color Block Double Layer Tee to review. Since it’s layered, it was easy to alter it and add nursing access to the bottom layer for a layered nursing top.
Color Block Layered Top altered by me, hand-me-down Lucky jeans, Keds shoes, Cozy earrings, crocheted statement necklace, hand-me-down vintage purse


  • A Layered Top
  • Sewing Supplies

1. Put shirt on and mark the bust points. (I like to use tailor’s chalk because it steams off.)
2. Draw circles around the points.
3. Cut the circles and finish edges with bias binding. Press so that all the edges lie flat.

This top is my new go-to dressy top. It’s so soft and comfortable, but it’s very me. It’s perfect for feeling cool in the summer and for dressing up. I can’t wait to wear it for a date night!

I also just got my hair colored! I like to lighten for the summer. It’s a front to back ombre and really light in the front.

  1. You look Amazing! I love the hair. And so clever with the shirt. I wish nursing shirts were just made that way, and cheap. Good luck with the date night. 🙂

  2. Ah! That's brilliant but what if Quentin or Micah pulls my shirt up… that'd be embarrassing!
