Hello, lovely followers!
Here is a teaser of my Dapper Day dress! I decided not to include too many details of it (the picture is even blurry, I know) because I want to present it in all of its glory, along with my accessories, when I’m actually at Dapper Day in the park!
Here she is!
I used the remainder of the yarn from my first dress to create this one.
The slip/petticoat was a feat in and of itself. I bought a wedding dress slip from Goodwill for $8. It was too big and only had tulle on the bottom whereas I wanted it beginning at waist level for a more 1950’s style. I cut the slip apart, brought the tulle up, attached an old spaghetti strap top to the skirt, added a zipper, and created a circle skirt to go over the tulle.
All if this….by hand….because I don’t know how to use a sewing machine (I’m so ashamed).
So glad this is done! Off to Disneyland in three weeks! I’m secretly hoping to get my picture taken by the official Dapper Day photographer…fingers crossed that my look is worthy.
Do waaaaaant! But I can’t knit. Fuck.
