OOTD - DIYed Floral

Dress - Handmade
Blouse - Evans
Shoes - Miss L Fire
Tights - We Love Colors
Bracelet - Evans
Bow - Craftster Swap

Hello again everyone! Haven't posted in a while - eek! Anyway, thought I'd show you my outfit today, it's a dress I made the other day. I am quite proud of it, I did it from scratch, no pattern. It's even got shirring at the back, which I never thought I'd be able to do. It may have not cost less than buying a new dress, especially with the time it took, but it was still worth it, I think!

I bought some buttons & flowers today. The flowers I hope to make (another) floral headband with, & the buttons are to jazz up some of my cardigans, which all seem to have boring plastic round 4 hole buttons. Now just to decide which cardigans are getting the new buttons!

  9. I totally second Rai. Even if you made a pattern and posted it, I think I'd learn to sew just to make this. That whole outfit is so cute.

  42. I am so jealous of both the dress and your sewing skills! (I am lazy when it comes to sewing ;___; )
    My favourite part of the dress is the small lace bows in the lining in front of each strap. I'm a sucker for small cute details x3

  49. It's like you've taken Loligoth and made it candy-coloured, then added just a _touch_ of Old-Hollywood glamour to it. Now I want crystal buttons for MY cardigans.

  50. Such lovely talent miss!! Your are beautiful and brilliant I would purchase this dress without a second thought and considering something like this would for $150 + at torrid you should consider possibly taken some of your creations, a few designs, and mock ups and shop around at plus size designers you never know until you try.... Let me know if you decide to start selling those radiant dresses!
