Anyway...that's why blogging was pushed to the back burner, since I needed to focus on school and preserving my sanity. I haven't taken outfit photos in a while, but I still wanted to share something with ya'll...these photos have been sitting on my computer since summer time, and I figured I should probably wait to share them until the warmer weather rolled around again...and well, it's finally spring, soooo...
I made this sundress last summer, when I was only taking one class at school, had just finished my nannying job, and was bored out of my mind. I decided I needed something to occupy my time and get the creative juices flowing, so I pulled out this mint-green vintage fabric I'd found at Goodwill, sketched a quick design, and got to work. I used a pattern for the top and improvised it so I could have the scalloped, button-down back with the little cut-out. The skirt I kept simple by just sewing together a couple of rectangles.
It's a bit tight at the top (which tends to be the mistake I make most in sewing), and I probably should've lined the top as well, but other than that, I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. The back turned out just as cute as I'd envisioned, and it was far less frustrating than it could've been. I'm interested to see what variations I could make on the design. :)
I'll talk to ya'll soon! I've at least got a few more hiking posts lined up that I'm looking forward to sharing.
