Dress: Made by me.
Lipstick: Clinique’s Melon Pop.
Last year around this time, I saw the movie About Time for the first time, and it quickly became one of my favorite films. One thing that I love about it is Mary’s (Rachel McAdams’) wardrobe throughout the movie. It’s vintage inspired, and oh so cute. Her grey dress with lace sleeves was one of my favorites, so I decided to sew my own version of it!
I chose a charcoal grey linen for the main part of the dress, and a cream stretch lace for the sleeves. Vogue’s V9100 had the right shape for the dress, and even included the all important pockets. I cut the sleeves in a standard pattern, and they worked perfectly. Sewing for this project was quick and easy, and I love the finished result!
Here I’ve paired it with my blush vintage inspired heels from Crown Vintage. I actually bought a pair of black t-strap heels inspired by the shoes Mary wears with this dress, but decided it was a little early in the year to wear them in these photos. 🙂
I hope you guys enjoyed seeing my latest sewing project! Have you made anything lately? I’d love to hear about it!
