Sewn : Gray High-Waisted Dress

Sunday, August 14, 2011


I made another dress! (someday I'll branch out and make shorts or 
something I swear.)
I used Vogue V1237 and New Look 6723 . Bits and pieces of both. 
Originally I was going to have a tulle underlayer but tulle is 
scratchy and uncomfortable so I nixed that idea. I still think it 
would have been cute though. 

{}  
In other news, im officially legal now! As of Wednesday, I'm 18 years 
old. Which in the state of Utah basically means I can buy dry ice.. ha but 
it's still kind of cool to say!
(And no this isn't my birthday party, but I loved it too much not to pretend like it was. :) 

Did you do anything fun/crazy/exciting when you turned 18?

  7. Thanks for the comment on my post, everything's back to normal now but it's scary how something like that can just happen in the space of a few hours!
    That dress is gorgeous on you, especially the colour :) I am seriously jealous that you made it, I can just about sew up holes in my jumpers, never mind make something!
