This is my….16th? 17th? first day of school. Oh lord I have been and will be in school forever…btdubbs I got a new hair cut!
I made this wool dress from a huge (size 14) pencil skirt I purchased some months earlier. This one’s been an ongoing project for some time. I cut off the bottom 3/4 of the skirt and kept it as it, lining and all. The princess seamed top was pieced together from the remaining 1/4 of the top and the pockets inside it. Waistband was ironed out and reused as is.
This is was quite an ambitious redesign since there wasn’t much fabric to use. In the end, I only had a 1’ by 9’ piece left after everything (not counting little post-it sized trimmings. Just goes to show you, you can make a dress out of anything!
Necklace is brown lace with pearls sewn it. In hindsight, it would have been much easier to just buy the one at Rue21 for $7 instead of making my own. But alas. Other jewelry is jank stuff I picked up from the streets of China.
And it gets so dark so early these days! I barely had enough time to take some pictures after I got home before the sun set…
