I am more than slightly obsessed with this certain dress on Etsy. I am convinced that we were meant to be together. The dress and me. Me and the dress.
The only problem is the $150 price tag. I just can't do it.
So I'm going to make the dress. I've been working on drafting a pattern by combining bits and pieces of other patterns and making my own adjustments. It's a work in progress. Thanks to a sale and coupon I bought the fabric (online). It's a delicious organic cotton / bamboo jersey blend. Yummy. I bought extra yardage so I could have enough to play around with because I'm slightly nervous. I've never sewn on jersey before and this is the dress we're talking about.
Anyway, I made a skirt. I used a recipe and not a pattern. I'll make some adjustments next time, but overall I really like the skirt. The color is fabulous, because well, I dyed it myself. :) It's super comfy due to the amazing awesomeness of the material. I wish all my clothes were made out of jersey. Bonus: the wide stretchy waist band means it can double as a maternity skirt. And no I'm not pregnant; I'm just being practical.
