So, I've been doing a fabulous amount of procrastinating with my uni work,
and spending the time on things like this...
My new gathered waist, long sleeved vintage-y print dress!
I made the pattern by pinning various bit of newspaper to myself and cutting it to fit.
Not the most professional ways of making a dress, buuuuut it fits me perfectly!
It has a high slash neckline, with puffy long sleeves, and a loosely gathered waist
Made from a lovely browny-beige floral print fabric,
which I got on sale for £1.99/m :)!
...and showing the sleeve and cuff close up.
I'm thinking of using this dress in my next project for uni- we're meant to compile a 5 page fashion spread for a magazine of our choice. (I'm still deciding on this!) We must style the shoot, choose a location and collaborate with a photography student from our university!
We were also told to go to stylemixer.com and get ourselves a title, and I chose
'Organic Ambience' - so I think the browny, earth tones may suit the title!
More on that later, I must get back to my research :)
