POP CORN

Heheh, it's been a while since I last updated, sorry about that! I've been thinking about what exactly I want to do with this blog but I haven't really come to any conclusions yet.

Anyway, I bought a fun pop corn -print fabric yesterday and spent the whole day making a dress from it. Usually I'm really bad at taking pictures of the steps but this time I actually managed to take two hehe..

In the first one I'm trying the top part on, and in the second one I'm trying to demonstrate how wide the skirt part was before I gathered it. I didn't use any patterns because they make everything a lot slower hehe..

These two got really tiny but you can click them larger to see the details. The one on the left is from the front, I improvised two darts (...muotolaskoksia? Hyvä kun en tiiä sanaa suomekskaan :D) there and they made the dress fit much better since the fabric doesn't stretch. The other one is from the back, nothing special going on there, just a simple black zipper.
And here's how it turned out! I already wore it to school today, and I think it turned out okay.

Go ahead and tell me what you think about it!
