the go-between

I don't know if buy my pants too low and my shirts too short or I simply have an unusually long torso, but more often than not, my pants-based outfits leave me with a strip of Evany-tummy twisting in the wind.

But then I came up with this really good invention: The Go-Between! Just look:

Brrrr! It's cold in here!

Getting warmer ...

I made this grover-fur go-between using a thread-through neck scarf I bought at Old Navy years ago. I simply stitched up the thread hole, trimmed the width a bit, hemmed it, and added a few sturdy snaps. I even had enough fabric left over for a weird, wormy little neck-tie thing:

I made a second go-between using an old tee-shirt that I'd accidentally ruined by washing with a red splotching item. I didn't even sew anything, just trimmed off the bottom,

folded it under to hide the red stains (which for some reason you can't see here),

and voi-da!

Before: Uh-oh. Somebody's got ass-crack fever

After: The the jukebox is officially out of order!

(hey, isn't that one of my beloved tops?):
