This is one of my favorite things that I’ve made. I call it my Spice Girls dress. I was inspired by the short dresses and square necklines of the 90’s that I associate with the Spice Girls. I don’t think I’ve ever worn it as a dress, though. It is WAY too short.
These are my original FO pictures. They were for a sewing community I used to belong to. I sewed this in the summer but it took me until the following spring to photograph it. Are you noticing a pattern?
I always wear this with my red belt for some reason. I didn’t own the belt when I sewed the dress but they really were made for each other.This was my Junior year of high school, I think. I looked cute as a blond, right?
The reason why this is my favorite is because I still wear it all the time. The picture on the left with the black hair was from my 18th birthday. My friend and I were getting ready to go out. The picture on the right is from late at night on the Friday before last.
It’s getting a bit tight to wear with pants. You can see my pants’ belt buckle through the dress and it’s just lumpy and odd. I might try it with leggings. Short skirts and dresses are really growing on me so maybe I will finally wear this as intended.
