I have this feeling that this month brings good and positive energy. My birthday was last month and I regard that as the beginning of the new year. A lot to reflect on and make amend where necessary. My birthday month is always a good month – same applies to May, so I’m hoping and believing God for a better May.

I’ve not been to church this year – reasons best known to me. I had this urge of being in God’s presence, and I planned to wear red (anytime I feel this way, I wear red) for that day. I picked my phone and called my friend that I will be attending church with her. She was surprised because I had said I would never ever go to this particular church. I don’t know God’s plan for me but I’m ready to embrace whatever comes. I’m here in a place I said I will be never be and  it felt good being there.

Never ever say never, circumstances in life changes. You can never tell what you said never to will be what will be doing forever.

So today’s DIY is about my planned strap skater top. One of the easiest DIY so far and took literally no much time.

What you will need:

1 yard of fabric
A pair of scissors
Thread
Needle
A tape

How to:

To cut the top measurement; measure under you armpit with a tape, mine is 33, the radius will be r=33/2π, where π = 3.14 and note the radius measurement. At the joined corner, where all four square meet, measure your radius. This will be the top of the blouse. Just so it’s clear, I’m using the template I used in this post.

  1. […] a beret again. In fact, I said I would not indulge in the beret trend – look at me now, never say never! Right now, the beret trend stands for been socially woke, to be outspoken and politically engaged. […]

  2. Let God do the work in you. Be blessed!
