New York, New Yo...
i swear. i just don’t know how to use my camera in a low light setting yet.
i got the courage to try this vintage mccalls pattern (7827) for an oona does it! challenge that 3 other lovely ladies participated in— i knew they would all make something fabulous so i had to raise my own bar. everyone went for a teal & red palette. though i was stoked about this combo, in the end i couldn’t bring myself to add red to this dress (all i could think of was supergirl), but you can see a bit of burgundy in my FABULOUS FIVE DOLLAR SHOES.
i’m sorry. i’m okay.
