Gosh, another outfit post. Are you all getting bored of these, yet? I sure hope not because I've got a couple more to come before I break the posting up with something else.
So, remember the dress from this post? Well, this is the long sleeved version (also made by my mother). For a little while I was worried that the fabric looked a little too much like I might be wearing pyjamas or a nightie, but once I saw it all made up I knew I didn't have to worry. The fabric is a very soft flannel so it's warm (but not too warm) and very comfortable. I'm very pleased, too, that I chose such large buttons - oversized buttons are so much fun, I think. Oh, and yep...it's another plaid dress! Casey suggested I do a round-up of them all one day, on my last post, and I think I might just have to do that.
I've been trying to get a little fancier with my hair, lately, inspired by finally getting a copy of this book for my birthday. (So far, I've only actually copied one style from there - not this one - but it's still inspiring me). However, photographing dark hair to show the exact style? Not so easy.
I think I might start collecting these sweetheart pins - maybe I'll collect sweethearts to go with them, too. Ha! Perhaps not. This one is a US Marines sweetheart pin and, even though these pins (and other types of Sweetheart jewellery. Also, see Casey's cute collection here) were popular in WWII, but I'd say this is rather later. It just seems too new. But I love it all the same.
