So I had the day off of clinical today which was spectacularly relaxing but I feel like I got zero done.
Thats not entirely true…
I did make a nonThursday thrift store trip to try to get some of the ever popular rolled up trousers
Ignore all the weird thigh bumpiness. The shirt underneath kept getting bunched up. Both pair need a smidgen of tailoring but for $3 each its way better than a $75 pair from jcrew. Especially when the black pair are Ralph Lauren and the gray ones are Hillard & Hansen. Not too bad. I also bought the striped tee its pictured with as I watched Coco Avant Chanel and have neen dying for some simple striped tops!
I also did a lot of work on the Velvet Snow dress.
I traced a previous pattern in order to make a new neckline and armholes. I cut the sleeves off of the original dress and took them in a bit and reattached it to the new dress. I ended up hemming it a few inches shorter and taking the sides in more.
After getting the dress base all ready I used some fabric tape to map out how big I wanted the bib to be.
I have attached the bib and have the collar all set to attach and I think in the long run I will forgo the cuffs just cus im lazy and I don’t think the dress needs anything else.
