remember that polka dot high-waisted skirt i made with the bad petticoat? i didn’t think so. but anyway, i predictably ended up never wearing it & made a dress out of it:

you can never have enough dresses. & i’ve been meaning to make a good swing dress for myself for a pretty long time. i LOVE those.

the skirt part looks SO MUCH better with a properly made petticoat. first i had just gathered very long straight pieces of tulle at the top out of lazyness & something looked off, but it took a while to realize that that was the problem. now i know why all petticoats have a tier of regular fabric at the top, even though it looks weird :p

& i probably won’t make anything new for at least a month :/ i unexpectedly have A LOT of catching up to do with school.

  1. Oh my goodness, you MADE that dress?! Whoa, how talented are you! It’s stunning! Clever, clever, clever!

      aww, thank you so much! : D
      it really wasn’t that hard. or maybe that’s just because i make dresses like this so often :p
