pinterest sweatshirt refashion challenge - The Black Beauty

My sister challenged me(here) to do to a sweatshirt refashion as done below by Dee
Pinned Image
So, finally I hit up the local thrift store and by luck found a brand new extra large black sweatshirt. I didn't take any before pics, so you'll have to trust me on this one. Also, by more luck, Dee made it easy for me and recently posted a tutorial for her sweatshirt refashion. So, I guess I didn't figure it out by myself, but I'm totally cool with that. Beyond cool actually, because secretly i dreaded the idea. 

And on top of my luck, my sister Sierra came into town just as I was finishing it. Which meant, she had the honor of being my both awesome and awkward (awesomely awkward) model.
 And no one else could have made that sweatshirt look any cuter than she did. 
I think I'll call this sweater The Black Beauty
Below is a sneak peak of the skirt she made in a amateur photo shoot {by yours truly}. Yes you read that right, she made it. I'm determined to get her sewing, one step at a time. 
 She really is the best model. Love her! (stay tuned for more pics of the skirt)
I wish my sister could come visit me more often...actually I just wish I lived closer to her, and to the rest of my sisters and family. But alas, I'll take what I can get.
