Sewn : Vintage Simplicity 8881 Dress

Monday, July 18, 2011

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!

Sorry for the absence! I've been away,

Seeing wonders of the world.

Realizing how crazily decadent Marie Antoinette was.

Visiting the sights. (Maybe one too many. ;)

eating french macaroons.

Some were winners,

others not so much. (Please just look at my mom's face. hahaha)

Enjoying time together.

and so wishing I could bring this bad boy home with me.

Paris and Italy, you've been good to me. 

Summer. Summer. Summer.

Wow, I am officially done with high school.

No really though, I can't believe it's all over. Never going back to Timpview, all of the people I might never see again, it's definitely a bitter sweet thing.
I'm super pumped for Summer though.

Sleeping in.
Laying out.
The Eiffel Tower.
Thrift shopping in Italy.
Macaroons in Paris
August 10 (My birthday. You all better make note of that date. ;)
Short shorts.
Late night movies.
Saturday Farmers Market
More time to sew!
Family cookouts.
Finally wearing skirts without tights.
Summer craft fairs.
4th of July parade.

Yes, I am definitely ready for summer.

What are your Summer plans?
