OOTD: Gunmetal Gardening

This week was... something I can't talk about yet. Trust me, the minute I'm free to speak about my current situation, I will.

On top of that, a two of my loved ones have been ill and I'm worried sick over them! 

So between being unbearably sick last week myself and now being exhausted from a stressful vibe at work, I didn't get much sewing done this weekend. Fear not! I will have more on that for you soon! 

But I did manage to make two things this weekend, and I think this new 'design' (as Megan calls it) is going to be the next tutorial I made available in my shop. Have a peek.

I'm really loving this piece. Actually, I'd originally bought the pansy shirt because it reminded me of the outing Ally and Megan and I had to Longwood Gardens. I didn't know what to do with it, though, because I wanted to keep the large graphic on the front while making it a dress. I could've done a Sideshow or a Calliope but I just needed to do something new. Of course I love it, so I made the one with the two guns on the front. It's a super quick and easy dress that yields such a positive result!

I was so excited I wore it out to a quick trip to the super market. It is so comfy!

Fingers crossed that life settles a little bit and I get to spend more time on my dreams.


  1. DARLING LADY, those dresses make me heart swoooon with love. I think it's a great option for shirts with larger graphics that you want to keep in tact (be on the look out, there's a shirt in the boxes I sent that I think is an excellent candidate for this design).

    You're so very creative, my dear. Stress sucks arse, but you can power through. We both can. Love ya hon. I can't wait for this shop to really fly! I know it's going to be great.

  2. It's a beautiful frock lovely - I'm sorry everything is so crappy right now. I am crossing fingers that life starts treating you better soon xo
