My gift is my song, and this one's for you.



 Dress - made by me

I teased you all about this project I spent yesterday working on, since I was too ill to do much else I figured I might as well get creative. The dress pattern was simple, and took me about 20 minutes to cut out and stick together, another 10 to scale it to a size 38 (it was a 34) and about 2 hours to cut, stitch, sew, alter etc... I'm so happy with the result, I went out, barefoot with no jacket on when I'm already sick with a cold, just to take some photos of it,
The things I do for you guys.
COUGH. (emphasizing how sick I am)
sniffle.
Anyway, now my parents are dragging me down to the countryside to visit some family friends.
Because apparently that's what people do when they're sick with a cold, go somewhere colder, muddier and greyer.
COUGH ...sniffle.



Song du jour:
Your eyes are the sweetest eyes I've ever seen.
Ellie Goulding- Your song.
