New Dress!

Today I decided to make a dress. I didn't use any patterns I just sort of started sewing...
I paired it with a belt to make it more flattering. I absolutely love the pattern! And it took me no more than 30 minutes to make!

How to make this dress!
1. Choose a good fabric with a pattern or design that you like. Then measure (I guessed this part) How wide you want the bottom of your dress to be and  cut it out. (Don't worry about length at the moment)
2. With the pattern inside out sew it from top to bottom, so that when you turn it back you don't see the sewing thead.
3. Sew a hem on the top and bottom. Make the top hem atleast an inch wide (the bottom hem can be smaller)
4. At the back of the top of the dress where the sewing is, cut a small slit on either side. Then choose and kind of elastic band and pull it all the way through the hem and out the other side.
5. Now try on the dress pull the elastic string to fit you so that the dress doesn't fall :p and go strut the town! (Also pair with a belt if desired haha)

If you have any questions just comment this blog and I will get back to you!

Fall is on the way, but florals have got to stay!

Haha, yeah I made that title up myself :P
So, I'm trying to get out of summer fashion and in to fall, but I am finding it quite dificult. Today, I have mixed together what I think are fall colors? Like the forest green and brown. But I still had to pair my floral purse with something, so here it is!
The shorts were $5 and the tank was $2, what a steal! The tights, however were $8... and not exactly worth it, you see I ripped them the very first day I wear them -.-

Me and my Paperbag Skirt

In my previous blog you may remember my new blue blouse with the white collar and the rose in the middel. Well this skirt was once attached to that blouse, however I feel that these two peice are better worn apart.
With the skirt I made a "paperbag" type look with the brown belt, and I wore it with a lacey beige tank with frills on the front.
I'm sorry I haven't written many blogs lately, as you all know, school has begun and I've been pretty busy. But I will try to post atleast once a week, hopefully more!
Thanks for reading!
