So I realize that our staff Christmas party dresses were all posted long ago but I've been m.i.a. from around here for a long time and haven't made much else lately.
Basically if I sew something it's because I'm obsessively picky and can't find exactly what I'm looking for.  This was originally going to be long sleeved with a scooped back but I knew I'd be sweating balls by the end of the night.  Bought some kraft paper and traced a long t-shirt and the sleeve of another one and just kinda made it up as I went.  Didn't get enough pictures though (ignore the stupid faces...).
The inspiration came from listening to too much Nick Cave and 45 Grave all winter while not being able to really afford anything from the Urban Outfitters website.  This also cost me less than $20 including the applique and over a meter of fabric leftover.

If I may inquire, is that crushed panne velvet from joannes? it's my designer secret.

Awe shucks, thanks!  I don't think we have Joanne's Fabrics in this crazy land of Canada, I just go to the local fabric haven called Dressew.  It has the cheapest, most random sewing related items everrrr!
