June Thirty

It's finally holidays and I made something! I decided to unpick my Minnie Mouse Halloween dress and use the fabric to try out the Colette Sorbetto pattern .

After one muslin and a FBA, it turned out ok. It's probably something I'd wear over jeans in the summer. It's not super flattering on me because of the lack of closure making the waist huge, but it's a starting point. I got Simplicity 1880 at spotlight on sale (at 50% off it was till like $11.WTF) for the sew along so that might be next on the list, or the rest of the Colette patterns from the book.

June Twenty

Pinterest+Polyvore=Pure procrastination

I've been dreaming of a holiday for a long time. I want to go to Melbourne and since the Harvest festival line-up has been announced my day-dreaming has doubled. 
Beck! Cake! Liars! Santigold! The Dandy Warhols! Shopping! Art Galleries! 
 I've been organising ideas regarding a holiday 'capsule' wardrobe instead of studying. Whoops.
