|Dress: Handmade (Sew Over It Betty)|
|Feather Hat: Vintage|
|Smooch heels: Irregular Choice|
I think this is definitely one of my favourite me-made dresses. I picked this fabric up on my post-Christmas trip to Abakhan, but I'm not really sure what it is. It has more stretch to it than a cotton, and the printed side is shiny, with a sort of satin feel, but the back isn't. I do think there are some huge gaps in my dressmaking knowledge base when it comes to things like that, but I've never professed to knowing a lot about it; I just pootle on with making things.
Anyway, whatever it's made of, I managed to get a Betty dress out of it - full skirt and all, as it was a wider roll. And I love the way it swishes! I couldn't wait to wear it, and did so the very next day with these Smooch heels and a feather hat which came from eBay at a fraction of the cost of one I'd seen in a local vintage shop.
I'm so glad it's the weekend, as I've been so tired this week. Not that I have a particularly relaxing couple of days planned. In fact, far from it. Perhaps we need to invent a weekend to get over the weekend.
