Last year, I got a "very easy" vogue pattern. The first dress that I made, I only changed the sleeves. The second one, I used it to combine the style of two A.P.C. dresses. I changed many things and it turned out pretty cute. This is the dress that I had for Christmas in 2008. I love to see my grand-parents and tell them: "Hey, look! I'm awesome, I made my own Christmas dress!!!". It is my little moment of glory during the holidays! I did one last dress with that pattern. It was again my Christmas dress!
I think that I won't use that pattern again. Maybe with "experience", I realized that the pattern was not that great. I had to slim it down a lot. I don't want my grand-parents to think that I'm pregnant. Ever since the wedding, a few years ago, they are just waiting for that to happen! I made it shorter because I don't want to look like a toddler! I also gave it a more "actual" look.
I'm still very happy with it. It has this little old French film thing that works perfectly with my new haircut. And with black ballerina flats, it is a perfect match!
Now, what pattern should I get???
