aloha new year dress

the moment i got invited to a hawaiian theme new years party
i knew i have to make a bombshell dress
sort of inspired with oona’s version
i started working on it too late, as always
what left me with 6 hours to complete the dress
meaning, no time for muslin or fittings
also, no time for original skirt for the dress
no way i could finish that one fast with such a slippery fabric
i was in such a rush
i decided not to try it on during the process
trusting that burda size 38 gonna fit me well as it usually does
the dress looked fabulous
only one tiny problem – i couldn’t zip it up
it was time to catch the bus and travel 230 km south
so i just packed it up
with plan to miraculously loose 5 kg over night
and fit in it tomorrow, for the party
next morning i realized that ain’t gonna happen
luckily, my aunt that lives near by have a sewing machine
so i changed invisible zipper with wider metallic one
and it did the trick
was it worth all the stress?
i guess not, since i got bored at the party
and fall asleep before midnight and all the new years craze
