I did it. I finally sewed something and it’s way outside of my usual style.
Not long ago, on this very blog, I declared a hatred of ruffles, and here I am covered in them. There are more ruffled garments planned too. I guess I’ve changed my mind.
PATTERN – Wilder Gown by Friday Pattern Company
FABRIC – Japanese Yarn Dyed Dobby in Wheat from Stonemountain
SIZE – medium
MODS – none
ACCESSORIES – Baleen earrings, vintage shoes.
I can’t say that this garment has been a huge hit with my partner – “you look like you’re wearing a Victorian nightgown,” . . . “there’s no amount of swishing that’ll make that look good,” and “are you wearing that nightgown outside?” have all been uttered by his usually supportive mouth. Oh well – I’m here for this lewk.
