Formerly ‘handmade clothing in action’ I am Re-naming this type of post to “wearing handmade” or perhaps I should call it ‘look I wear the stuff I sew sometimes’.
Today I am wearing a dress I made a year ago. I feel very different about this dress now. I still like the print but I’m not sure about the proportions. The dress has taken on the role of a skirt today. The rest is not handmade only the scrawl/scribble dress.
This outfit feels very 90’s to me. The dress-turned-skirt-for-a-day is sort of a little ‘Clarrisa explains it all’. If you are too young to know this reference you are not missing much (then again at the time I DID envy Clarissa’s Doc Martens).
These photos are sort of gloomy. The lights are pretty florescent (rather than warm) in this place and the walls always seem to look gray when photographed. I vow to take less crappy pictures in future.
