I have a tendency to buy cute sewing patterns when there is a great sale like the $0.99 sale Hobby Lobby and let them go untouched for months or years. This pattern is one I bought last year. I had planned on making before summer but between my eye healing, finding time and looking for the right fabric it never came together. Even though it is getting cool I still made this since I found the right fabric and had the time, aka the sewing bug hit.
Here is how the dress came out. I have to say it took a lot longer than I planned. Three days worth of work and becoming friends with the seam ripper I am happy to say I love how it came out.. I had the feeling the whole time that it was going to be way too big since it was starting to look like a tent. I ended up trimming the length so it hit at the knee, which made it not so big at the bottom. I just love the vintage look of this.
The top fabric has a silver metallic star print.
To make it wearable during the cooler weather I paired it up with the long cardigan. Plus the combination of this with leggings and tall boots is super cute. It looks better on me instead of the hanger.
