First of all, can I have permission to say 'UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUURRRGGH'!
and then some more uuuuuuuuuuueeeeeeerrgggg... and well, more of that.
moving houses sucks so hard, that if I could put all that sucktitude into a machine, you would have the best vacuum cleaner in the world. I banged my toes against Every. single. moving box in the house. I have turned three boxes upside down looking for scissors, and now Joost is calling from the kitchen, asking if I know where I packed the nutmeg (!) which i know, because I packed it at the bottom of a box, but I have no idea which one. So, yeah I think I will start liking moving houses again as soon as we've got the keys to our new place, but so far, I am hating the guts out of it!
But to cheer myself up, yet another throwback-refashion! ( I will soon be making things again. promised!)
I started with a little, sleeveless black dress.
After an idea that I think I saw on Sarah's blog, I decided to go a bit bolder with this dress, with white ribbon details on the shoulders.
The first step was adding little cap sleeves from a piece of fabric that was leftover after shortening a skirt.
|sorry, I don't have the original photo's, so the text in in Dutch!|
Then, with a tiny zigzag-stitch, I stichted the whole thing into place, which was actually easier than I expected it to be. just make sure that you only stitch the very bottom of the ribbon, to allow it to stand up.
but then, disaster happenend..
|IT IS SHORT!!|
But, no worries, because I simply too some extra fabric from the before-mentioned shortened skirt, and added some extra lentgh.
this is how it turned out!
again, a little quircky, but I quite liked it! the hem looks a bit wobbly in the picture, but as I remember it ( hey, it was 2 years ago!) in reality it was quite okay;)
I hope you liked it!
So, while my only creative activity has been packing boxes lately, I'm wondering: have you been up to any creative mischief lately?
