"Sew" crazy! (So I made another dress)

  Well, I love my sewing machine. I sure do. I'm so loving being able to make my own clothes, AND so I made another dress. And I thought I'd share it with you all, again. I actually managed to make it fit properly this time! To make it, I half used a pattern (a vintage 1960s dress pattern for the top) and half used my own pattern (for the pleated skirt), then joined them both up, and used buttons on the back. Check it out!



 





I'm pretty happy with it. I'm just soooo excited now because there are SO many possibilities, so many dresses to be made, now that I know that I can successfully make one! I'm thinking crazy detailed giraffe or safari print fabric in a 50s style dress, open back with bows and a scalloped peter pan collar..... I can make anything I want! I think I'm going to become the crazy dress lady. I will! And I sure am excited about it! 

Wearing:
Dress - handmade
Necklace/pocketwatch - wholesale-dress.net
Belt - vintage
Socks - tutuanna
Shoes - yesstyle.com

New philosophy - you can NEVER have too many dresses. Especially not if you're making them yourself. *Hooray for continuing justification of my endless obsession with clothes!*

I love you all! Have a super day!

  12. With a lot of practice, it is even possible to make more beautiful clothing like wedding dresses. Sewing your own clothes can be less expensive than buying them at the store, in many cases. Although this may not be true when you purchase at a discount or thrift store, it is almost always true when you decide to sew a fancy dress or gown.
