|Dress: Handmade (Simplicity 2444 w/ gathered skirt)|
|Can Can Heels: Irregular Choice|
This dress is pretty much brand new but already full of happy memories. I made it on Sunday during a day with the Mean Girls at Sarah's house. We met for brunch at Bill's and then spent the day sewing. The fabric was some I'd bought when Sarah and I went to the Quilting Show and the print is a kind of sewing-themed newsprint. The articles are kind of hilarious, full of dreadful puns and kept someone occupied yesterday for a while whilst I was talking to them.
Then, yesterday I wore it for an almost-full day of work, then a trip to my favourite cinema. We saw Jersey Boys, which was rather good, despite having seen the stage show a number of years ago and therefore knowing most of the plot.
I went all monochrome with my zig zag shoes and a boring black blazer, hence the bright blue necklace to add just a little colour to the whole ensemble.
When I got home, I got my sewing box out and discovered some pinking shears and a Kinder Egg panther from the weekend - love you, Roisin!
It's been a week of good things so far, ignoring the fact that I'm currently terrified by the prospect of an upcoming spa break, as I don't think I'm brave enough to wear a swimsuit in public in a place like that. Body confidence woes are back with a vengeance, it seems.
