28 August 2014: It’s HERE!

It’s here, it’s here! And it fits perfectly and I can’t find any stains on it at all and I love it so much.

I keep twirling, ha. There’s a little flouncy net petticoat under it and it’s super fun. I can maybe see where some of the white is more antique cream, but unless I am missing something big, the stains are pretty faded or gone. (Please, coworkers, be sure to point it out if I’m wrong!) I love how it fits, I love the skirt length, I love the color, love love love. Happy twirl!

Also last week’s Project 365:


17/Ginger beer based drink + peach basil risotto out to dinner for my friend’s birthday. (SO MUCH GINGER LOVE.)

18/Leaves turning on a few trees! I love it.

19/Rice Krispie treats for above friend’s birthday. Needed more marshmallow fluff and pressing.

20/Shrug patterns – I’m debating among 5 or 6 patterns to wear at Dapper Days in February. I’m not sold on clothing pieces made with bulky yarn, but they are cute. Hmm.

21/Patrons are making their own superheroes at the library this month. I liked this one, Super Mama and the one about Doctors and Doc McStuffins being superheroes.

22/Little Elsa with Elsa doll at our Frozen singalong!

23/A torrentially rainy day with thunder and flooding requires tea. It just does.

  1. Oh wow! That’s adorable! It looks like it fits perfectly? The length is spot on!
    So no stains to be found? That’s weird yet awesome.
    Funny to see Rice Krispy treats. I made a batch this past weekend for no apparent reason other than I wanted a random treat. I could only find colored marshmallows though. Weirded me out, but tasted ok.


    • It’s just about perfect – a little tight at the ribcage, which was mitigated with a bra change. I went strapless, though, and, uh, it’s not staying put. So it feels tight again until I can adjust the bra, ha! But other than that, it’s great, and the length is just so exactly right.

      Did the colors blend or come out kind of tie dye? I used fluff rather than melting marshmallows, which worked mostly well. I should have made sure to clean the jar out entirely, or augment with marshmallows, though!


  2. That dress does look amazing on you! I’m glad there are no stains. I hate to sound cynical, but do you think you got too good a deal on it, and she was hoping to get you to back out?


    • Thank you! And you know, I think that makes a lot of sense. Hmm. The other dresses on sale, including one in my size, were mostly over $200, except one at $150. I got mine for far less than that, even adding in shipping. I’m glad I took the risk!
