Are you tired of seeing handmade clothes yet? Hope not, ’cause I’m not sure I’ll be stopping any time soon! Inspired by so many runway trends, I felt drawn to the idea of a new dress featuring a black and gold star print. With fall soon approaching I also wanted to incorporate velvet. Combine that with a silly yet unavoidable desire for a proper sailor collar and we have this! Again, I have already put together so many outfits with this dress I could barely decide on one. Today I settled on this thrifted red bowler hat and my old red swedish hasbeen clogs. These are a summer-time favorite for me so I’ve been consciously squeezing them into my wardrobe lately before it gets too cold!
As for the dress itself, I chose this print from a fabric store (who am I, right?) but I did make use of repurposed fabric for the lining as well as the dark velvet ribbon I used as the necktie. It turned out nearly exactly as I pictured it and I can not wait to really put it to use this autumn with dark tights, pea coats and booties! Oh the possibilities!
