Dress: Handmade (Sew Over It "Betty")

I know it's almost the end of January, but it suddenly occurred to me that I haven't yet shared my New Year's Eve outfit. I guess there's not a lot to say about it, really. I picked up the fabric in Goldhawk Road last summer, purely because it made me think of party dresses I'd had as a kid.

I made it into a Betty dress because I wanted the full circle skirt. A lot of people commented that it looks as though I've made it out of wrapping paper, and the fabric was a bit of a pain to work with - frays like a bugger! - but I rather liked the effect.

  2. It's rather stunning. I love how a full skirt feels - the swishing and the whole ladylikeness of it all x

  3. Wow, that dress is stunning! I love the fabric.
    In reference to this post's title - I listened to the new FOB album yesterday. 14 year old me is so, so sad. I don't know what it is because Patrick's voice sounds better than ever, the lyrics are pretty much the same as they've always been but I don't really like it.

  5. Oh my gosh, I totally love that dress. It's exactly like a skirt my Sindy doll came with, EXACTLY like it. It's freaking me out and making me all nostalgic. Love the full skirt and effect with the stripes.

  10. It's so shiny! It's great. If you can't wear a super pretty, shiny, dress at New Years when can you? Love the bag too.
