I'm going to be really, really good at being a poor student when I move out of home later this year.
Yes. Why?
Well, for starters, I sewed this dress myself.
And guess where I sourced the stripey material for the top?
A pillow case.
Not even a pillow case I already owned.
A thrifted pillow case.
(I washed it first)
That's how ridiculously thrifty I have gotten, apparently.
The light blue was some remnant material from a charity store as well.
But I really like how the dress turned out! I think the colours go really nicely together, and I love the stripes, even if it was once used for someone's sleepy head!
