Back to School Dress, with pics


In the future, I will take the pictures in the morning. This is after a long day of work and a hot, a/c less car ride home, so bear with me.. This is Simplicity 4079. It turned out slightly big, so I made a belt (copied off a belt from Forever 21's website) for it. No one really commented on it at school, so tell me what you think!

Here is the pattern:
I was a little over-inspired by the illustration, eh?
From the back, with the dog looking like he's being abused.
Um, it looked better before I sat in it, ate lunch, etc. It looks like my velcro is a little off, but it was good for a patter-less test run, and to practice my copying from an image skills.
Soon I will have a skinny black belt and a fabric-covered sewing box to show you!

PS We lost out kickball game, boo hoo!

  5. I love this outfit. I have the same tendency to fixate on the envelope illustration.
