New York, New Yo...
i got on a separates kick last week after completing an oona does it! separates challenge… i used the top portion of BS’s cap sleeve dress pattern (altering it by raisng the waist & neck lines, squaring the neck and gathering the sleeves together), then went to town on a wee cotton halter RTW dress that had been the victim of a violently hot wash and dry. i just hacked off the halter top, reattached the waistband & zipper, and added a few embellishments. instant skirt!
this outfit marks #70 in my burdastyle studio!
you can read more about it over at oonaballoona: hipper than hip, in which i also visit some hipster wildlife in the concrete jungles of brooklyn…
