in 1950s,1960s

you know how sometimes a fabric and a pattern are meant to be together? that’s kinda how i felt a few weeks ago when i went to an estate sale and found these two things

and 4 yards of teal poodles!

i knew i was supposed to make that dress, so i went home, and i did it-

taaa daaaaaaaa!

i added on square pockets to the front with buttons from my grandmother’s button collection that i recently inherited. i also opted to make the bows detachable because sometimes i feel like as a¬†freckly, petite, 25 year old with a high pitch voice, i don’t exactly need extra bows to make me look any more not my age… just once, i’d like to not be carded…. once…..

now that i think about it, wearing poofy dresses with poodles on them probably doesn’t help either…..

well, as usual there is more on my blog!

xoxo,
christine
