Woo, I’m pretty excited about this post! Mainly because I made the dress I’m wearing myself! Quite a while ago, I also made a dress myself, but somehow I didn’t make any piece of clothing since then. Recently, I started sewing again and this Twiggy style 60s dress is the first item I finished! It was quite a challenge at times, as it required techniques I hadn’t used before, but all in all I’m pretty happy with the result! I was planning on wearing the dress in a very simple combo with flat sandals. But unfortunately, it was a tad (#coughcough) too cold for that yesterday. And as I really wanted to wear the dress, I created a different outfit with it. And we were finally able to shoot in front of blossom trees! This was on my wishlist ever since I spotted the first blossoms, haha! So now, I’m really curious to hear what you think of my dress and outfit!
