Fashion, sewing

And thus, an obnoxious dress was born.

23 October, 2011

An outfit photo of me, fat and pale skinned, wearing a short dress with a large retro stylised flower pattern in teal, purple and yellow, with teal leggings and brown wedge sandals. I'm standing in the backyard in front of the Hills Hoist.

Mum and I went to this new-to-us fabric store near her last week and I bought this fabulously obnoxious 70s style cotton lycra as well as some other pretty fabrics. I made it up into a version of the Burda Style Fatina Plus the other day, ordinarily a very simple pattern but my machine throws hissy fits every time I bring a stretch knit fabric near it so it took all day! I shortened the pattern and lengthened the shoulders to make some self-sleeves and now I have the best, most obnoxious, little t-shirt dress for summer.

The way I edited these photos reminds me of the Happy Litte Vegemites ad and with the Hills Hoist in the backyard, this post is chock full of Australiana. You ripper Rita?
