Once upon a time last Monday, I realized I have less than nine days to pack up my things and go. Which is why I only have a simple dress to show you today, and nothing next Wednesday. I'm sorry. I'll try my best to get a proper post done as soon as possible!
I had a few yards of glittery lycra. When I bought the fabric, it was covered in glitter. A trip to the washing machine robbed much of its sparkle, and left it with a more subtle shine. The fabric wanted to be many things, and I had to force it to make up its mind.
Eventually, it turned into a dress.
This was a birthday present from Me to Me.
The dress is tight and long sleeved, and very comfortable to wear thanks to the elastic material. It has a keyhole cut designed to reveal the obvious lack of cleavage. Still, I love it to bits and would probably wear it every day if it didn't need to be washed every now and again.
The long hem bears a narrow ruffle. I contemplated on adding ruffles to cuffs as well, but decided it would maybe be a little too much. In a more simplistic form, the dress is easier to mix with corsets and cardigans.
Do you give yourselves birthday presents?
Until next... time?
