Completed Hawthorn!

I finally set aside a few hours to mark and sew my buttons holes, and finally finished the dress! I really like it! I made no alternations to the pattern whatsoever. 


Excuse this, it’s too humid to care, august hair!  

The coral belt is store bought. I like the way it looks with the light blue, but I really like all pinks! I used a stretchy cotton bottom weight, which was pretty forgiving fit wise. I might do a full bust adjustment next time. It’s a bit on the tight side around there currently. I would probably add a few inches to the skirt length as well. I don’t wear above the knee all that often and it just feels weird now!  The lipstick I’m wearing here is WNW megalast “Just Pink”. I normally don’t go for such light colors, but it matched my belt! I think besides the bit of tightness around the bust it fits me pretty well! Since it’s sleeveless, I’ll be able to dress it up well into fall with tights and cardigans! 

I’m pretty relieved the button holes went in without much to do! I’m always worried I’m going to ruin nicer fabric when I use it. More so than ever with this dress, since this is my keepsake from my trip to LA. I’m still dreaming of mood!

  1. It looks like it’s a bit tight across the upper back, too. You seem to have nice, broad shoulders. I don’t but I have a barrel-shaped rib cage so my dress/blouse backs tend to pull just about where your "pull lines" are in the back view, and I often have to add some width across the back and then take up the shoulders and waist. Maybe go up half a size and then take in the waist as needed?

    That is adorable fabric! The length looks fine but you’re right that it would look more vintage if it covered the knee.

    1. I’m car broad shouldered, but when I normally do an fba it usually takes care of it! It probably would have been a good idea to size up, but I’m at the top of the sizes right now. Thanks for all the helpful tips though!
