Have I mentioned how obsessed I am with Doctor Who? I started watching ten days ago and I’m currently finishing up season six. Yeah, whoops? So far I remain skeptical about Matt Smith. And Amy Pond. And the new tardis. And the new intro theme. *scowl*
And can I just mention that I have absolutely no idea why it took me this long to get into this show?? I mean, I sort of know why. I’m well aware of my tendency to get over-obsessed with things, particularly with tv shows (e.g. Firefly, LotR, X-Files, I could go on but this is embarrassing enough) and I just didn’t have the time or energy to add another one to the list. Another one I knew I’d go completely bonkers over. Still though, how I managed to go the last eight years without knowing anything about Doctor Who other than the title and that it was something sci-fi-y is beyond me. Up until ten days ago I thought a tardis was a little blue creature that followed the Doctor around!
Unrelated: I miss David Tennant. I may have a slight lady-boner for him.
Anyway, I made this dress on a whim last week. Let’s call it the sewing equivalent of a rain dance, except wishing for sun and warm weather. Which makes no sense and is completely backward so let’s not actually call it that.
I used this pattern from Burdastyle, with minor adjustments to the bust area. I also lowered the neckline by about two inches and shortened the skirt a few inches as well.
And no, I did not start this entry intending to ramble endlessly about Doctor Who.
