I'm glad everyone likes the dress. It's a fun one. I don't wear it often because of the high neck, it's a little chokey.
Libby said…
Those pictures turned out so cute. Where did you go after the park?
(I could help you make the neck a little bigger, btw.)

I love yellow and bright blue together. LOVE your sweater, that's my favorite color.
Forevermelody said…
The sweater is actually purple, it's hard to tell in this photos. It's a deep rich purple color. I love it. It's cozy and functional.

oh oh oh i like this one! i feel like i'm always the last one to see the dress and comment and so everyone already says what i wanted to say about it! haha, alas. i'll try to be first next time. and you'd better KEEP THIS ONE, especially with those boots and purple cardigan :)
Total keeper.
To me it looks like a late '60's dress...but that's a quibble.

No argument in how freaking adorable you look in it however.
Forevermelody said…
Haha, Bella, you would totally know better than I about what era this dress is. I think the someone in my fashion class said it might be 70s. I really don't know, there's no tag.

I Shot First - A Han Solo Halloween

This past Halloween I wanted to do something inherently sexy. Who is sexier than Han Solo? Answer: no one.

I started with pictures of Han. Specifically from "A New Hope."

Here are the elements: Off white, mandarin-collar shirt Black/navy vestDark pants with red stripesBlack boots (I already owned a pair)Belt and holsterBlaster
I started at Thrift Town, where I found a pair of dark slacks, a shirt, and a black suede jacket. I think I spent around $12. I cut the sleeves off the jacket and used red duct tape for the stripes. 
I ordered a toy blaster online, it only comes in white and orange. So I had to spray paint it. I used this tutorial.

If I was going to go further with this costume I'd make a replica of the belt, like this awesome woman did.

Luke really wanted to be Luke this year. His costume was a little more tricky. We bought a karate uniform online, he used a pair of khaki pants he already had and we tried to make the boots out of Ace Bandages, but that didn't w…

She saw my post about panniers a while back and got it in her head to make a pair of these roll-up brooks brand panniers - and she did. Here's the story:
Hey there Melody,  Remember these (Brooks roll-up panniers)?Well, I was so in love that I decided to make my own. They still need a few finishing touches but I was so excited I just had to show you. 
I'm going to Tandy Leather on Monday to get the studs for the little internal straps and maybe get a set of leather handles to sew on top so I can carry them like a satchel while shopping.  I made the pattern based on the size of a paper grocery bag so they should be big enough for two full bags of groceries! I think they look perfect on my Gazelle, don't you? (Yes, they look amazing).
I wanted to make them a little prettier on the inside so …
