I cut it off. Remember the Everlane short sleeve sweatshirt? In general, I liked it, but it was also big and too long on me, so I have really never worn it much. Every time I put it on, I wished it was shorter…so, I took matters into my own hands and snipped it. I am REALLY not a DIY person in any way, so I don’t do this very often, but I wasn’t wearing it anyway, so thought I’d try. I think it turned out nicely.
Of course, it will fray, unless I hem it, which I’m sure I won’t because I don’t have a machine. And anyway, I sort of like the “rolled” look that sweatshirts get when they’re cut. It will fray also, but again, that doesn’t bother me. I will wear it more often now, likely over dresses or with my high-waisted JP pencil skirt.
I did finally order a new piece from Everlane yesterday: the sleeveless poplin shirt in white. I settled on that instead of the dress because I don’t have anything similar, and really like the cut of the shirt (slightly a-line, cropped, tent-y in the back…) and hope it will work nicely with a lot of things. Fingers crossed! Has anyone ordered a dress or any of the new poplin pieces?
And now, if I may ask for your input: Do you like the “magazine” style I switched to several months ago? I mean that when you visit the front page, you have options to click on instead of just a blog format where you’ll see the last 5 posts while scrolling down. I’m thinking of changing it back to blog style and doing a lot more tweaks. Unless anyone is particularly loving the new format that is…I always welcome feedback on making the site easier to use/navigate/read.
