Hello World! Hope you all had a good weekend - here's a few things I got up to this weekend. First of all I made a new dress.
This dress is an upcycle - I bought a vintage dress a while back because I loved the fabric. However, the dress was hideous. The body was literally two squares sewn together (not flattering) and it had a horrible cowl neck.
Here's the ugly frock reborn using my vintage maudella 5619 pattern. The blue fabrics are the remnants of some fabric that Emi gave me that I've already used to make an A-line skirt.
But the past weekend wasn't just about sewing! It was also about roller derby - I got to see my friend Jaimee skate as "Jammit Frame" for her team "Smash Malice". It was a pretty fun night, we went with our friend Andrew and then got some Mexican food afterwards. I even bought a Smash Malice tee shirt to wear to the next bout.
Hope you all have a good week xoxo
That dress makeover is absolute genius, you look gorgeous x
I adore what you have done with the dress it looks fabulous!! x
Great re-do on the dress and I am a fan of ties on any dress:) Your weekend looks like a blast tea and roller derby such diverse fun in your interests...Love that about you!
Very clever use of that great fabric, I love the two-tone dress! xxx
It looks great. I love the contrasting back and the tie. I have that table cloth that's in the last photo.
Oh YUM I spy my favourite NZ savoury scones!!! You know cafes here don't do savoury scones. You occasionally find a muffin, but not a scone. Paul & I were just talking about it today, wishing a Kiwi would open a cafe here & serve some good savoury scones! Okay enough about the scones! Great job on the frock. I like the front, the block panel is flattering & adds an extra something to the vintage print. Xx
Sounds like a great weekend. And your refashion is amazing, no wonder you rescued the dress, what a pretty print!
how clever you are! i looove the blue in the middle, great refashioning job darling!
lots of love and kisses,mary
