Oh my god, this is brilliant.
My boyfriend is an architecture student... this would be a PERFECT gift idea.

Ha, are you Buffalo too? Well that thing is pretty warm.

I recently acquired access to my grandmother's insane collection of vintage patterns (cut in my size! score!) and notions.



I really love this wrap dress. The material is a red cotton gauze with vintage lace.

Behold.

So it's like a hundred degrees in Northern California right now. And naturally I thought, what better time to make a winter coat? I do go to school in upstate NY, so it has a degree of functionality. Just.. not necessarily at the present time.

This project was barely premeditated. I just happened to have a surplus of batting and this washed out gray-blue cotton in my stash. It was very much a creative process, needless to say.

Anyway, I LOVE it.














Our photoshoot was pretty stupid... ha.
Thoughts?

These are sooo fabulous!
I bet you could reinforce them with like rubber cement or gorilla glue to supplement the staples and snaps.
I, too, wear my favorite shoes until they literally fall off my feet. So that extra insurance is good.
Great job, I would have never thought of this.

So I have yards and yards and yards of this sheer-ish red cotton. So this is one of a few applications (= there will be more red posts). Combined with red gingham, it's either the cutest thing on Fourth of July or something plates should be laid out on. I'm not sure yet.


The pattern is my own design. I just inherited a whole bunch of vintage patterns and notions from my Grandmother, so I was inspired by a vintage-y cuteness that would allow for such a picnic themed top.


The pleats in the front are my favorite. The actual bodice is lined so that you can't see the goods, but you can see how sheer the fabric is on the unlined sleeve.






Here it is with the yoke/collar up. It's sort of how I intended it to be - I was going to put a little red button at the top, but I like it a lot better how it naturally sort of folds over. It looks a little lopsided in the picture, but it's just a result of bad posture.

What do you think?

The bow on the back makes it crazy adorable.

I think it's really interesting. The bodice part is gorgeous, as is the skirt. I think what makes it at all silly is just the  midsection. I think you could take that part out and make a really beautiful top (or super short dress) out of the bodice and skirt. It sort of reminds me of Sweetpea's dress on this past season of Project Runway.
