Plaid and Subtract

Hi dolls,

the Leipzig Bookfair is coming up and I'll be there for the first time (I'm really looking forward!!), so with preparations and the usual work I have with university and my etsy shop, I have almost no time to spare to sew something for me. This is insofar unfavourable as my personal to-sew-list grows at an alarming rate since I got tons of inspiration at La Vie en Rose... but the only thing you can do about it is taking one thing at a time.

I started with something quick and simple. Maybe you remember this dress I sewed almost 3 years ago (wow, has it really been that long)?

I always loved the fabric; plaid is so versatile. This particular one can be combined with red, black, green, white, offwhite...
But alas! Over time, the dress became too small in the bust area. I sometimes wore it with a vest or cardigan over it, so no one would notice that the zipper didn't close at the top, but that just didn't feel right (-.-)
So as a solution, I made a skirt out of it!

Funny enough, Goldkind did the same to one of her former lolita dresses

I also rehemmed the skirt, so it's a bit shorter now. With the original lenght, there was just too much of it.
And since there was enough fabric left over, I made a matching bow (^_^)

Whenever I have a new garment, I want to wear it as soon as possible, so this was my outfit for school yesterday:

Beret: bought in Paris
Shoes: Tamaris

A note about the beret; it's actually the first I ever bought. I always loved the look on others, but also thought they wouldn't fit me. Lea convinced me otherwise, so I decided to give it a try. Here I wore it for the first time on monday:

Cardigan: Chicorée
Skirt: Rakuten
Shoes: Deichmann
I'm still trying to figure it out, but I like how many possibilities there are. Especially now that I have longer hair and can make various hairstyles! (^_^)
