I've Got a Vintage Vibe Going On


I don't have time for a proper post today. I'm trying to schedule Vancouver trips and plane trips for different friends, figure out how I'm going to take the SAT up here in Canada, write book reviews,  renovate the house, stay involved in the orchestra, work on my cosplay, AND write things for this blog. Let's just say I have a lot on my plate, but that's not necessarily a bad thing! It's good to stay busy. I just feel like I'm neglecting you guys sometimes.

I will endeavor to at least get one post a week up from now on. This doesn't quite count, but I wanted to show off the dress I made this term in Textiles. I wanted something polka-dotty, something I could wear for a more vintage feel, but was also trying to save some money. Therefore, knocking out an item along with a school project, I grabbed an old pattern from the 80s and got to work. Curled hair and red lipstick makes this outfit even better. I'm pretty proud of it! This is the first 'big thing' I've ever sewed.

So what do you think? Do any of you like to sew? It's a great way to add some originality to your wardrobe, if a bit time consuming.
