this is another one i made a bit ago. i'm going through and finally taking pictures of everything now that i have a working camera.





i went through a big thing about loving hoods on unexpected pieces. this one is made of shiny grey knit. its great because its thick enough that it didn't need a lining and the fabric doesn't roll or fray so i didn't bother hemming it. (i don't have a serger so working with stretch annoys me anyhow) It's all cut out of one piece of fabric, hood included. only ONE seam here, the one up the front which i sewed with elastic to give it that gathered look. I LOVE this dress, so simple, so comfy and easy to wear. i have the hood pinned to my hair so it wont fall. If anyones interested i could probably make some sort of shoddy tutorial Tongue i just kinda made it up as i went along

yes! Shoddy Tutorial PLEASE!

it looks really great and I love how versatile this could be

the hood makes it easier to wear it casually, cuz the color and style make it quite schmancy otherwise...

ps: those wall things are quite cool! CONTACT PAPER?! i would've never guessed...they look like they could be made of metal...heheh

very very cute!
and I bet when the hood is down, it makes a really complementary scoopy-swag kind of shape that looks really neat.

i like it!
