I think I finally lost it today. When I woke up and got dressed, the last thought I had about this outfit was "I need to pin another bow to the bow I have on the skirt because there's not enough bowage on this skirt"
I now present to you "Rabbit Skirt with Double Bow"
Apart from the double bow, I had an excellent day! I attended the first annual Flutation Summer School that Rosalie Bourne from Flute tutor Australia organised.http://www.flutetutor.com.au/
I've never seen so many flutes together in one place on the coast at any one time. (More amazing than that, they had to close registration early because they reached capacity super quickly!)
I'm super keen for day two. I've been floating between the various groups helping out on some of the weaker parts in the beginner and advanced groups, and having fun sight reading times with the advanced group. It's so nice being around so many like minded people!
Guess what I did yesterday!? (It may have involved busking, and it may have involved my band)
As much fun as busking is, it is responcable for the following "mess" which is Fridays outfit. I didn't have time to take photos when the sun was out, and I really liked the outfit, so I sucked it up and took photos in Gosfords commuter carpark.
I felt a bit like a zoo on Friday because I was wearing an elephant belt as well as my fox skirt.
Today I played in the New Empire's Christmas concert (which I'm kind of hoping will be an annual thing) It was hella fun (and there was fake snow!) It was an exhausting show. I collapsed on the lounge with pokemon when I got home.
I've been back at the sewing machine this week. I have really missed sewing all the things, and because it's uni break I'm going to sew ALLLL THE THINGSSSSSSS
I used this fabric:
and I made these shorts:
I drafted this pattern using another pair of high waisted shorts, then after I sewed my playsuit, I altered it further to fit me better (which basically means I didn't need to add my usual darts.) I also firmly believe that lace makes everything better!
Coat: Thrifted, Shirt: Alley, Belt: Thrifted, Shorts: Handmade, Tights: Myer, Leg Warmers: Tree of life, Shoes: Thrifted Converse
I took Louie out again today. He's become the perfect "I don't want to take my main bag because I don't really need it" Bag. Also, He's an Elephant. Who doesn't like Elephants. :D
