Hello snow, & hello new dress!


I'm so happy it's snowing again! I know that some of you get snow all the time, but the novelty never seems to wear off for me! I rushed out to take some photos of my new dress whilst the snowflakes were still falling from the sky (possibly a mistake because my camera got soaked and all the photos are covered in little white dots). It has stopped now, but hopefully there's more on the way later.

This is my second dress made for Wardrobe Re-fashion. You may recognise the pattern from some of my previous projects! Unfortunately, I won't be able to make any more dresses like this as I've lost the sheet of paper that I made the pattern out of :( - what a disaster. Anyway, I used black velvet material for this one and lined it with silky cream coloured fabric - a rather luxurious combination!

The coat in the pictures was an eBay purchase from a few weeks back. It's a little bit too big for me when it's done up properly, but I'm really in love with the colour.




And these are the (snow covered) gloves I bought in my pre-Christmas shopping spree. I couldn't resist the bows...

the gloves are so cute:)
You could try to trace the pattern from the dresses you've made so far...just fold them in half and draw around the pieces, maybe this tutroial describes it better ;)

Your dresses always turn out so gorgeous.

I'm going to start trying to make simple shift dresses for spring and I'm so nervous that they'll look awful.

Gorgeous photos! I just found you courtesy of Wardrobe Refashion. You did a fantastic job...I especially like the color of the coat against the black of the dress and gloves.

Ta robe est si jolie !!! Où trouves-tu les patrons ? Est-ce que c'est toi qui les fait ?

En tout cas je suis comme toi, dès que je vois un flocon de neige je deviens folle, je saute de joie, je perd dix ans d'âge mental :D)

Bises

How lovely! I love velvet but I find it really difficult to find (it's all that hideous stretchy crushed velvet). Great job and the snow is so pretty!

I love the combination of black, gray and mustard yellow! You look beautiful. And the metallic dress in the last post was awesome, too... I wish I could sew as well as you do!

Iv'e just come across your blog and its one of the best outfit blogs i have ever seen! You have great style, I was just wondering, who do you get to take the photos? If I asked my friends to take photos of me for outfit posts, they would just laugh, they don't understand the world of fashion blogging. x

L'armadio del delitto said...

Your blog is so lovely!
Tu aimes le français? Je suis française (mais je vis en Italie).
I love the colour of your coat!

OliviaDias said...

Having a few days off to enjoy the snow and watch catch-up TV was pretty good, but now Its my third day off because of snow now and its really frustrating because I want to start my huge painting! I'm painting the picture that I have at the top of my blog.
Ooh a tripod, genius! I'll just have to search for mine, I didn't realise they could come in so handy! thanks.

Rachel said...

LOVE the coat, and the dress. Black velvet is so luxurious. And I'm jealous of the snow. We had SO much last year and none this year.

Jen said...

I love yellow in the winter. It reminds me of sunflowers and blue skies! Also great work on the dress! It looks so perfect, and in velvet too.

The snow up North is around 6 inches deep - I'm utterly sick of it! :)

Parapluie said...

I think it's great that yout participate in this Wardrobe Re- fashion! The dress is lovely

Harriet said...

Wow, that coat is lovely.
Do you think you could post the dress pattern, like you did with the skirts before? It would be really helpful to a lot of people (including me) :) xx

Tink in My Closet said...

You look snuggly warm. The coat is a little slice of perfection!
