Description

To celebrate the exit of the first man-made object from our solar system, me and a fellow blogger (the lovely lazylinchen ) decided to make something space themed. I went with the combination of the rather girly Reglisse (Deer and Doe pattern) and this much less girly astronaut cotton poplin to create my Voyage into Space dress, and lazylinchen made this fantastic cowl-necked top from awesome nebula fabric (check it out here! )! I had a few reservations about the pattern when I started making the dress, but I think I have come to terms with them now I’ve finished and worn this dress in public. To read more about this dress and for more science geekiness, visit my blog!

    Hahaha! Your fabic is so awesome! I think it sets of the girliness of the dress excellently. If I wore such a dress out I wouldn’t be able to stop myself from grinning all day!

    That’s a fantastic dress, and a fantastic reason for making a dress!

      Thanks, Pambox! The whole Voyager thing is just too exciting to not do anything to mark!

      Thank you very much, Mary! It’s a lovely top that lazylinchen made, isn’t it? I was very envious of her fabric! I am trying to resist buying more of the fabric, but I think I may have to pop back for some more next week…! xx
