What I'm Wearing This Weekend

12:37 PM 8 Comments A+ a-

I must say I'm in a full on love affair with Sewaholic patterns at the moment. Earlier this week I posted about my love for my Cambie dress, but now I'm majorly crushing on my Lonsdale. This too is a pattern that fit me perfectly without any adjustments. (I know it doesn't look like its fits well in these pictures but that's because I can't stand up straight to save my life) Huzzah for Sewaholic! Please come out with 75 more patterns so I can just make your clothes from now on.



This dress was also an excuse to use this crazy pastel 80's fabric from my favorite local thrift store that's been sitting in my stash for ages. It's a medium weight cotton, maybe orginally intended for curtains or pillows? Not sure, but it was obviously too great to pass up, especially at $4. I debated for months what pattern to use before it hit me. The Lonsdale is a perfect springy/summery pattern to match my springy/summery fabric!

That bow is SOO hard to tie by yourself! Also, again, if I would stand up straight this would look a lot better...
Anyway, in a few hours I'm headed to San Angelo, Texas to re-unite (if only for the weekend) with the fiance and celebrate the wedding of one of our high school friends. This will be the first public appearance of the dress, although, yes, I have worn it around the house a few times. Don't judge. I'm excited to twirl  my skirt and kick my heels up with my boy toy. Plus it will be nice to have someone to help me tie the bow in the back!


Hope you all have fabulous weekends!

Love your lonsdale - you're right about that fabric being perfect for it!
Also, I've been known to call my man "boy toy" too. :)

The answer to this is YES. This is the best Lonsdale I have seen, hands down. I can't even begin to express how much I love this print. It's so 80's and this minute simultaneously. I want this dress. WANTS. And it fits perfectedly!

LOVE LOVE LOVE! That fabric is perfect with this style of dress, and those heels are a fabulous finishing touch! I think I am going to go home tonight and cut out this pattern asap :) Well done!
