I took a break from refashioning this week and sewed up a new dress instead.Dress: self-made // Belt: thrifted $2 // Shoes: No1 Shoe Warehouse // Watch: Storm
The pattern is the same vintage Simplicity 7763 pattern that I used here. This time I skipped the facings and instead, fully lined the dress with a lawn cotton.
It came together so fast! No zips, buttons, interfacing … no fuss and preparation, just fun!
Ever since I saw Miriam’s cute yellow bow belt, I’ve been on the hunt for one similar. Good things really do come to those who wait because after months of looking, I discovered this stunning pink one at a local op-shop! I snapped it up faster than a crazed woman at an Alexander Wang giveaway.
ohh cuteness..every time I see the lovely summer clothes you are making for yourself I feel inspired to make myself something…x
Oh yay! You totally should! xo
ha ha love that last face :o) the dress is super cute and a perfect shape on you x
Hee hee, thanks Miriam! I nearly squealed when I saw that belt … I’ve been coveting yours for a long time 🙂
Really cute, Katrina!! As always, I love your photos, too!
