Following on from the maternity wear talk, on the same day I found those cardis I also found these erm, lovely dresses. I mean, maybe if I was some tiny little thing I would actually think about wearing the stripey one. It might actually look okay dressed up with a cardi, tights and boots or something. But as you can see ( the mannequin is set to my measurements, although her boobs are larger because that’s it’s smallest setting! I’m so disproportionate.) 80’s sweater dresses don’t suit my body shape or size. But I snapped them up knowing I’d do something with them.

I hardly ever make clothing for myself, but I’m so happy with how these turned out. I’m feeling a little inspired to try out some other ideas for myself, now to find some more time! I barely have enough to do everything I need to do now!

What everyone else said!

I think I especially join with Aimee’s sentiment of “Holy shit these rock!”

I wish I had the imagination to see things like that… *sigh*

Inspiring R 🙂
