The Good Kind Of Rainy Days

Worn on June 24th, 2011

We’ve had another few days of pretty rainy weather around here. Usually, I don’t like days like these. But these have been some pretty good ones. This week I’ve spent almost all my time in comfy sweatshirts, drinking coffee, and sewing away while netflix-ed Dexter episodes play next to me.ย 

You see, I wanted a second outfit for our engagement shoot coming up. But after weeks and weeks of searching for the perfect dress, I just couldn’t find something I wanted. So it finally dawned on me to just make something myself. If I wouldn’t thought of this earlier, I would’ve designed and drafted something myself. But seeing as I now only have a short amount of time, I decided to go with a commercial pattern. And I’m loving the way its looking so far.ย

- my little sewing buddies :)

- I realized all of the mugs I own have something to do with WNY/home. I’ve had this baby for the longest time.ย 

- almost done! this photo is deceiving. the skirt portion is actually just pinned together. I was getting impatient and wanted an idea of what the finished product would look like. don’t worry, you’ll get to see the real thing soon!
