A new dress…

November 2, 2007 at 9:48 pm 1 comment

Every time I have an evening out, I never have anything to wear (even though I have tons of clothes). Tonight, I am going out to a 1960’s DJ night, and I wanted something fun to wear. I whipped this dress up in about an hour, with materials that were floating around in my stash. The bodice is made of a lovely black material that has a beautiful drape (I used it to make a pencil skirt for my Grandparent’s 50th wedding anniversary party last summer) , and the skirt is a 1960’s vintage fabric that I had laying around. I put the two together, using this pattern, and now I have a lovely new dress for my wardrobe. Of course, this is all due to my affiliation with Wardrobe Refashion, it has now been a month and I have not purchased any new clothes. It feels very liberating.

On with the photos!
