Hola! Super nerdy outfit post here and wow I took a little bit of a break there! If I'm being completely honest I needed it! I have this really bad habit of piling a lot on my plate. I've also been working on my anxiety and Panic Disorder. In fact the other day I ran all of our errands alone, which is a really big deal for me, though I did end up with a bad anxiety attack after. Aside from that I've noticed that keeping myself busy and working with my hands helps a lot! I've been painting, writing, and sewing! The skirt you see here took me about 3 hours to make (it was my first skirt) and was really easy to make! If you are interested in trying it out yourself here are the links to the Youtube videos I used for reference:

It feels so satisfying making my own clothes, and all the money I'm saving in the process. Plus I feel like I have a strange shape and this way I'm able to have the perfect fit with comfort too.

I have also been on this kick where I feel that all clothing should have pockets, and when I made this skirt pockets were the first thing that came to mind. The pockets ended up being my favorite part! Unfortunately when I made the skirt I used my hand for measuring when I should have used my IPhone! I have the IPhone 7 plus and it doesn't fit. The next skirt I make I will make sure it fits.

Another fun thing I'm wearing is my new badge for the 501st Legion. I got it for when I'm not in my Jawa robes and when I'm wrangling. I think it's cool that it also has my PR Officer title. I help out with The New England Garrison's social media, which is a lot of fun!

And did you notice my hair? Can I say that gray hair is the hardest color I have ever tried to achieve? Because it is! My poor hairdresser had the hardest time trying to lighten it and I just recently re-toned it. Overall I love though! Have you ever had a hard time achieving a specific color?

I had a lot of fun taking pictures for this, as you can probably tell. My awesome fiance Mary was taking all the pics and my daughter was there too making me laugh. I love them so much.

Anyway, Thanks for stopping by!

xoxo,
Eeka

    1. Thank you! I didnt use a pattern. What I did do was take my waist measurment and doubled it and then just measured from waist (or where you would like your waistband to sit) to 3 inches above my knee. It was really easy!
