Ze Feel Good Jumper

I've had this fabric in my stash for a while. It was bought with the intentions of being a bolero, however, decided it should be a jumper the other day.

Please excuse my appearance, total pyjama day today
I whipped this up in a matter of a few hours. I used a pattern for a hoodie by Ruffeo Hearts Lil' Snotty, available for free via Thread Banger.

It's a 'minky dot' thing and it feels SO GOOD. I had friends over today and they could not stop touching me!

My friend thought he'd be hilarious and take a photo of just my boobs. Thankfully though this shot shows off the texture of the jumper! Ha! Take that, friend!

Smells Like Roses

I am very pleased to present this dress, as not only is it a really pretty dress, it also means that my short film is completed! This fabric features through a lot of the 90 seconds and I thought it'd be cute to present my video to my class wearing a dress that matched the short.

Butterick 4792 strikes again! This time I used a half circle skirt instead of like, 8 meters worth of skirt. Much better!

Be Mine, Dress?

Candy hearts dress!
Made from Simplicity 4070, view A bodice with E skirt, however I have of course modded the pattern quite a bit.

Modifications include: the heart cut out, lowered back neckline, taken in on the shoulders, and the skirt shortened by about 5+ inches.

I also used bias tape instead of lining the dress.

This in total cost me about $35ish to make, so, bargain!

I wore it for a photo shoot today for my friend's uni assignment, and I shall put some up when I get them c;

Pretty darn happy with the result, could have made the keyhole a bit smaller (friend's lecturer referred to it as a "display cabinet" during the shoot!) and the back lower, but seeing as I kicked it from my head I think it turned out nicely.

The pattern itself is rather boring without modding so this is a good one for practicing the keyholes with!

A Coupl'a Skirts

This post was supposed to feature all four skirts however only two have been completed, and I've been tied up, but there are another two on the way! Basically I've just used the waist band pieces from the Ginger skirt and ripped a yard of cotton in half, attached on the sides and gathered. Nifty little skirts they are!
