You know that awesome feeling when you make a goal for yourself and you actually do it?
dress: self-made // capelet: Apostrophe (thrifted) // boots: Nine West (thrifted) // tights: F21
It feels pretty good.
I have a confession. I’ve been in love with Zooey Deschanel ever since I saw her in Bridge to Terabithia (which has always made me bawl like an infant, by the way), and when I got my Bon Look glasses a few months ago, my roommate asked me why on earth I didn’t watch New Girl. I didn’t really have an answer, so the next Tuesday, I snuggled on the couch with her and it was pretty much the best half hour ever.
Are you shocked that I was immediately inspired to make a dress from the show?
I used pretty basic pattern frankensteining for this one. I used Simplicity 1873 for the pleated skirt and then used Burda 7309 for the bodice and Burda 7739 for the sleeves, which I elongated to make them end just above the elbow. The dress itself is made of red cotton sateen and is super soft with a tiny bit of stretch. I might be wearing this on Valentine’s Day for whatever Boyfriend has planned that he refuses to divulge.
Still need to work on the lack of photo editing skills. We’ll get there.
Happy Monday, guys!
