Okie,
So recently I've gotten a job,
And weridly it's given a burst of energy,
And all i wanna do is make make make,
Also summer is just around the corner and I have no dresses
=[

So after finding this tut
I decided to make a new dress,,
Out of cheap (99p) curtains
=]


Mid shot,

Closeup of the Bust


The skirt


(It's not wonky it just appears it)


I'm so pleased with it  Cheesy
This was my first time attaching a zipper,
And although I forgot to add a picture of it,
I adore the stiching on the zipper,
And for once its straight lol

And please tell me what you think
=]

The charity shops round here are rubbish,
And pretty expensive,
I got them from a curtain shop,

I work on a textiles section of a shop,
I do a lot of running about,
But when it's slow I get alot of time,
So I start plotting my next design

Neat! A textiles shop is the perfect place for a sewer I would guess.

that, is gorgeous!
i would so wear it over jeans
and then my step mom would look at me
and shake her head
and walk away

cause she doesnt get the point of wearing a dress if youre also wearing jeans.

cause its cute!!!

yeah, come to think of it, my last boyfriend hated it when i did that also...and he had NO fashion sense, so he really had no say in the matter as it is.  seriously, the boy owned three articles of clothing, levi's classic mens jeans, dark wash. hooded pullover sweatshirts.  teeshirts, mostly from vacations hed been on. pathetic, really, we dated almost a year and a half, and i NEVER managed to drag him out to get any decent clothes...except the night before my sadies dance freshman year, that night we went to kohls and got him a red shirt, black slacks, black tie. and he wore them once.

Haha,
You sure we didn't date the same guy??
Sounds similar to my ex,
He'd be like 'Wow look at this',
And I'd be thinking 'Thats the same as your other t-shirt  Roll Eyes'

yeah, cause he never really dated any one else, ever. maybe its just that all guys under a certain age point are completely lacking in the social and fashion department, and just when they get older they figure out how to interact, but still cant dress themselves.

alo42d - The only annoying part, its the dress can be pretty rigid at times, because of the curtain fabric
