It’s not an impression you’ll get by looking at my last few projects, but normally I don’t wear black. Like never . But every now and then, when I stumble upon a super cute print that comes only in black I simply have to make an exception. I mean, I’m talking about does and dots guys! You can’t say no to that.
My friend/ roommate bought a dress with this white lace collar which she didn’t like at all, so I ripped it off to reuse it on something else. After I found this fabric I thought the two goes together nicely, so I combined them into this little dress. I also had some pearl buttons laying around and I throw them in the mix as well.
Bodice is made with (heavily modified) pattern #107 from Burda 03/2011, and skirt is 3/4 circle. I had a little difficulties with the hem – I couldn’t get it to look even and in the process of leveling I ended up cutting it a bit too short. Whoops. In the pictures I wear it with a petticoat with lace hem I made a few years back, it’s not the most perfect solution but it works fine :)
After I was all dressed up and ready to go out and met my friend for photo shooting, I looked myself in a mirror and all I could think was why did I end up looking like Lolita? It’s not a vibe I was deliberately going for but I guess I should’ve seen it coming, with all this lace and locks. Oh well. It was fun look for a day :)
