This is quite embarrassing. I made this dress last summer and the skirt last autumn, and have only now got around to posting
So, the dress is an amy butler pattern, which, if I remember rightly was quite nice to make. Although I foolishly attempted to line it with super thin muslin which was a huge mistake, it just frayed and floated around everywhere
But at least its on the inside.
(I really don't know why my face looks so squinty, it must have been the resizing)
It's rather cutesy, so I tend to wear it with a lot of black
A close up of the cute print (and evil muslin):
I made this skirt from some lovely black velvet that was hanging around the house. I love velvet, but it leaves a LOT of little black bobbles all over the place. I made up the patten myself, the front consists of three pannels with pleats at the sides. I call it my gretel skirt
Its pretty damn short though, I'm thinking of adding a bit to the bottom...
You can't really see, but the zip is a nice brass metal one. (that velvet is REALLY had to photograph) Pleats:
And sweet ribbons sewn on very wonkily
Sorry the pictures are so bad, I really can't photograph myself
