My first shirt dress with weird results

Added Oct 2, 2011

Shanghai, China






I paired some weird fabric with a weird pattern, and got a weird result. It looks much better than it feels when I’m wearing it, and I’ve totally tried to wear it a few times and always felt uncomfortable and bulky.

Oh well! Might suit someone else one day!

    I agree with ichigogirl, you look fab. Although I understand when one feels weird, one doesn’t like to wear the clothes even if others say you look good… Keep trying, though, this dress is lovely, it’s sure to worm itself into your heart someday!

    Oh, but it’s so pretty on you! And the fabric isn’t weird, it’s fabulous! Is it a tad big, perhaps? I made a very similar blouse from a vintage pattern, and it ran big, definitely. Still, it’s nice. You should wear it with a wide, black belt and boots, it’d look great!
