Outfit | Self Made 60s Dress -
April 23, 2015

Hello loves!

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!

    This is such an adorable dress! Love both the cut and colour, it really suits you ♥ Specially as the yellow colour makes your hair to look even more shiny.
    I am learning to sew at the moment, but there are years left until I am as skilled as you are. Please, keep posting about your pretty DIY projects.
