Who Doesn't Like Unicorns?


When I was younger, I use to believe that unicorns were real. When I would come across a horse, I was always on the lookout for a horn. I wanted so badly for them to be real. Wouldn't that be awesome? Like Rainbow Bright's unicorn, Starlight...okay, why do I even remember his name? 


So when I saw this unicorn printed fabric, I knew I had to make something cute from it- this dress! I love it so much...except that it did end up being a little crooked on the back waist. But I can hid that with a belt....and if you look closely, the top is a little lumpy because I think I messed up sewing the lining in ....oh, and the top back of the dress is also a little crooked so I have to make sure to leave my hair down...but I still love it!


I wore this dress all day last Saturday. At night,  Tad and I went to the the movie so I threw on a pair of tights and a bright cardigan since I always get cold in the theaters (I also switched into glasses so I can see the screen a little better). I think this dress is going to transition nicely into the fall by adding a cute coat, tights, and boots!

Outfit Details:
Dress- made by me! (Kwik Sew pattern 3521)
Bag- B. Makowski
Cardigan- J. Crew
Headband- Anthropologie
Belt- Anthropologie

I'm thinking of making dress in this cute mushroom print fabric that I found...I'll make sure I do a better job lining the dress and sewing this time!

Do you have a pretty dress that doesn't fit too well but you still love it so much that you try to hid its imperfections?

(btw, Tad took these photos- isn't the bright pink wall awesome? He's the best...but he does ask one thing in return and that's to give him credit when it's due. Fair enough. Thanks babe!)

I have a heart print dress that no longer fits (i can't zip it up anymore), but I still love it and tried to hide the fact that I can't do the zip by throwing a jacket on top :-)
The pink wall makes the perfect backdrop for your outfit. Oh gosh, i love that headband!
