gypsiejen 's Thoughts:

I am so excited about this dress, because it came from my dress-up collection from when I was a little girl. Of course I go back to the attic each year, search the fabrics to find the colours I want to work with – and dare I say what seems slightly trendy at the time- and take it to the sewing room.

This dress is one of my favourites right now :D
It was super long and sort of baggy, most likely a brides maid dress in 50’s. I had to take in the pleats, the arms and sides. After I cut it, I realized my ambition got me into a really reaaaaaaallly short mess. So all I did there was sew the existing bottom back onto the skirt as a hem; which was good for weighing it down too.

So anyways, I guess the point of the story is that I want to say I am thankful for the hand-me-down dress up cloths that were given to me as a little kid. My room mate recently asked me where I got an interest for fashion – and of course I realized that it all started with playing dress up as a little girl.

Try to search through some of the old scarves or coats you might have in your closet; you might be surprised to find something you can love all over again!

I love your dress and that coat is so perfect! I love the color! I have a coat on the way that is very similar and I'm super nervous about styling such a bright color. I'm getting really good inspiration from this! ^_^ <3 +1
