If you're coming over from my other blog, you might recognize some of them, but there are plenty of new ones too!
Here we go!
This first dress isn't something I made at all really.
You see, my dear old granny (who's a saint and makes great carmel corn) brought me this skirt that used to be her favorite as a girl. But Grandma can't wear this skirt anymore because she did the hug-able grandma thing.
Problem was, grandma's skirt was hideous (in my eyes). Regardless, it fit really well and I liked the styling quite a bit. (You'll find I'm quite a sucker for classiv/vintage styles.) And no one wants to get rid of a gift from Grandma...
So I layed it out on a white sheet (white draws out the colors in a pattern) and i sat back and thought of what to do with it. So looked at the colors and the patterns and decided it wouldn't make a good mini skirt, or a panel dress. And none of the colors matched and nothing looked good as a clash.
Well, then I had to go to a concert and while I was there, I saw a girl wearing one of those new tank top- skirt dresses. And all of those dresses were paired with just two boring solid colors. But now I knew what to do with the skirt of many
So I bought a black tank top. (Black being the best color to work with in that skirt). and I stitched it to the skirt. But it was missing something... So I added a chocolate brown sash.
Who would have thought this combination would work?
Not my most favorite or challenging work, but I like it well enough and now I can wear it on Sundays when I visit Grandma.
