I made another dress! Floral (of course :) with a V-neck and NON-pointy shoulders. I don't know why but the sleeves look really pointy for some reason? So just try and ignore that. haha

Sorry for the poor picture quality by the way. My camera was stolen in Paris (true story) and unfortunately my $20 eBay substitute is giving me crap. Ugh, so in the mean time while I'm saving up my mula, let's just pretend that these photos are supposed to look like that.  (Also in the mean time, if anyone wants to give me a new camera, totally feel free! Really I wouldn't mind at all!)

I used Simplicity 8881. It's a 60s pattern so I'm kind of in love with it. Seriously I may have screamed a little when I found it. I didn't realize there was a front zipper at first but I totally love that so it was a good surprise. 
Next I'm thinking about making the killer bellbottom one piece on the right.
haha really though, how awesome would that be?

Update: Here's a better picture of it, modeled by the gorgeous Melanie Wood!

  8. So at first I thought you just posted a picture of you modeling a cute dress and a picture of a pattern you were going to make--it took me a long time to realize that YOU MADE THAT DRESS! Darling, darling. You should have made that scarf with a pocket to go with... ha ha, what the. And you have to make that bell-bottom piece, if you don't I will!

  9. Aw, i bought a $40 camera on ebay (actually, the one i use now..) and it's total crap. I know the feeling. Although no one ever stole my nice camera! That's pretty bad. But Paris is a large city, those kinds of things happen.. Oh well :/

    I though front zippers were a fairly recent concoction in the fashion world.. interesting..

    By the way, you're so very sweet. Thank you <3

    Yea, the shoulders are a bit pointy, but more on the left side.

  11. Oh that is horrible! Can't believe it got stolen... so sad. You look gorgeous, love that print!

  12. You look great! The dress is super cute. About the sleeve-'pointiness', it think i remember from fashion school days that patterns from that era come up higher UNDER the arm, and the sleeve head (top) is higher and more gathered so your arm has greatest freedom of movement- and of course, it's a cute look!
    So sorry to hear about you camera getting stolen! Happened to my best friend when she went to Vietnam, she'd literally landed five minutes before.
    Oh, and some day you have to tell the story of how an alpaca broke your poor foot!

  24. You always amaze me with your crazy sewing skills. Your hair looks really pretty in the picture is it darker? Maybe it's just the camera. Sorry about that that's terrible thing to be stolen from you, seriously I would die.
    Anyways, I think we should seriously plan this lunch we always talk about. Maybe before summer ends?
    I don't know maybe. (:

  26. Have just found your blog and I am so happy to see you have made up this pattern as I have been hunting for it but not seen it made up as I think it was really cute. I came across the pattern number when I found out a school local to my friend had used the pattern as school uniform back in the 70's! How awesome!

    1. Are you serious? That's awesome! Man I wish school uniforms still used such cute patterns. That's really cool though, thank you for that fun little fact. I love learning things like that. :)

      If you make it please share pictures on your blog because I'd definitely love to see it!
