I finally finished this dress! I say finally not because I was strapped for time, or it was that labour intensive (which it was a little), but because I went to the fabric store three times before I remembered to buy black serger thread, which is, of course, what I went there for in the first place. All three times. Seriously am I getting senile? I hear older people talking about how they went upstairs to get something and then forgot what they went up to get and I’m like ‘oh don’t worry I do that all the time’.
I made this one out of an a sarong someone gave me a long time ago. I like the idea that the fabric has been to warm and sunny places. I think that’s the reason I like vintage so much, I love to imagine all the places that a garment has been and all the things it has seen. This one is a little big in the bust for me so I am releasing it Etsy in the hopes that some more well endowed gal will take it home and love it. This will be the first dress I post on Etsy, and if someone buys it the first dress I sell as a graduated fashion designer. Exciting!
