Description

This was a dress.

For, like, 2 hours.

I’ve had tons of this crazy synthetic-leather-imitating fabric, which, as you may remember, I used for my slouchy clutch as well. Inspired by the photoshoot, I decided to make a beautiful faux leather dress; “it would be so me” – I thought.

And so I did.

And so I tried it on. It fitted very well, so I went out for the party.
And so I sweated. And sweated. AND SWEATED.
I really wanted to kill myself, but, most importantly, cut damn dress into pieces.

And so I did.

Well, maybe not to pieces, but… really. I even accept it now. And I can actually WEAR it.
Victory!

(it’s based on 02/2011 Leather dress #117, but I cannot add “based on” for some reason)

    Looks fantastic! I can never get that “based on” thing to work either….

    It’s funny story. The scissors can do a job as good as needle and thread!
