OOTD today.

Had an afternoon tea birthday party to go to. I don’t really have anything fancy, so I made myself a dress. It’s a mashup of Butterick 4443 and my own sloper for the bodice. I bought the pattern after seeing Tegan’s version.

Not happy with the neckline - I had a few issues and basically winged it, but I think I know how to make it better. It is far from perfect, but I’m really pleased with it as a project. It came together surprisingly easy, and I didn’t freak out at the mistakes. I think I might have leveled up in sewing :P I will definitely make this pattern again, now I have some of the kinks ironed out.

Fabric is just plain cotton from Spotlight. Fat necklace is from Natalie. Hot from the Gilles St markets. I’m wearing a super dodgy petticoat that I made for a costume a couple of years ago. I think I need to buy a nice one.

Went to the party with my sweetie, who also kindly took the photos. But I took this one.
