Golden Girl

September 22, 2013


I was hoping to take photos of my flamingo shirt today but it was a bit too cold for short sleeves so I had to re-think my original outfit. When raiding my closet for an alternative I found this dirndl skirt that I made months ago and never blogged about! William and I found a quaint wildflower field, when driving home from a rather lack luster classic car show (lack luster as in: I saw a 1993 Dodge Stealth nestled amongst the actual classics *facepalm*), and decided it was the perfect place to take a few photos.





I made the skirt by simply omitting the top and adding a waistband to this 1940’s dress pattern. It has a lapped zipper closure and one button at the waist. No pockets. Pinked seams. Nothing fancy.




The chilly weather may have prevented me from wearing my flamingo shirt, but it was the perfect excuse to wear my 1950’s cardigan that I found at an Op Shop in Vermont. It’s in beautiful condition aside from the faux pearl buttons, which desperately need to be repainted.

The weather is supposed to be much warmer next week so I’m sure I’ll be able to share my finished silly shirt soon! I also need to get crackin’ on my Fall For Cotton projects! I’ve got a week left. No pressure, right?

How was your weekend?
