to make it quick as I’m actually heading out the door now, I wanted to show you my last project.

I finished this dress yesterday and I’m still not sure if I like it or not.

So, all in all: it’s lined in light blue, has a side seam zipper, two of these loop-snap-button-things on the inside to keep the bra straps in place, I lowered the neckline from the original pattern and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND you do a full bust adjustement if your cup size is larger than a C and plan on making this dress. I wish I had done this, but oh well. With a minimizer bra it’s ok.


I know, I really need to vacuum my floor 😀

DSCF4394I like the neckline in the back! *Ö*

DSCF4392Without a petticoat it’s still a nice dress, but I think I’m gonna sew one, just to be safe. I don’t even own a petticoat yet! *gasp*

DSCF4398 And a close up shot I really like.

Man, I really should’ve found a better background, but I don’t have anyone to snap a few photos of me 🙁

The bows can be detatched and are actually just knotted around the straps.


I hope you like it! 🙂

Here in Germany we’re reaching the high 90’s this weekend, so I guess it’s a perfect time to wear this dress outside!

Milkshakes for everyone!

  1. it does suit you very well! lovely neckline as allie said. i think it might be worth trying with a blue belt and with no belt to see if you like it a different way better. it is quite lovely as is though!

  2. This is such a lovely dress. The fabric is flattering to the style. I have to add that your entire look is quite is beautiful. Thank you for sharing.
