I found the most kickass pokemon sheet in my local thrift store and decided that I MUST HAVE IT. so I did.

I kinda looked at it for a few days whilst I made myself some pants for which I'll make a different post later.

I'd been wanting a shirtdress for a loooong time. I've been meaning to make one since january, but didn't see any patterns I really liked, and they were all ultra expensive. uncool, pattern companies, uncool.

so I'm boycotting! This summer I've been making my OWN damn patterns...that's right, take that. So I whipped one up yesterday and tossed a dress together. All I had to do this morning was put darts in and hem. Even though I'll be 20 in a month, my mumsy still makes me go to bed. o__0;;;;

so behold, here's the pokemon shirtdress of doom!


general sass-tastic pose. grawr


closer to show the oversized, loli-rific collar and poofy cap sleeves. I blinked.


and my mom wanted me to hold a tomato and look at it. I'm just so deep, am I not?

I'm wearing a petticoat under it, since I wanted a nice, full skirt. One could easily make a more narrow one. Actually, I plan to do so when I make my next one. Maybe even a pencil skirt for a change of pace.

If anyone wants guidelines for making one, I could definitely help. *pleased with self*


(lets hope these images work properly...they so aren't in my preview...ah...boo, just try the links, then whilst I'm fixing it)

ETA- I hath defeated the evilness that is photobucket! huzzah!

I love it! Looks great on you, by the way. Too bad all the thrift stores around my area are kind of lame and don't have any Pokemon awesomeness. Do you think you could show/ tell me how you did the top?
