♥ Dolly Castle ♥
HANDMADE DRESS // ASOS SHOES // H&M CARDIGAN // ASOS SHEER HEART SOCKS // DOLLY DARLING BROOCH // NEW LOOK DAISY BUN TIES
Hello again everyone! See, I said I'd try & post more often, this outfit is from the other day, when Carl & I walked back from lunch in a nearby town. We were planning to take photos in the aquadrome there, but it started to rain, so we decided to head back before we got there. The weather brightened up on the way home though, so we took some photos on the moor, & I also snapped a few images of the scenery. We met a lovely cat, who started meowing from a bush as we walked past. I thought it was a fox cub or something, but then turned around to find a cat. I got to give it a fuss before it ran through my legs, I think it was on the hunt. We also saw some farm dogs, ducks, bunnies & a squirrel, but sadly wasn't fast enough to snap a picture of the wild animals!
The dress is one of my latest creations. I've had this fabric for ages (I got it printed at Spoonflower, it features my old shop logo), & I finally got around to sewing it into a dress. I originally intended to make a Lolita dress with it, but since I don't often wear full on Lolita much anymore, I made it shorter, with less skirt volume & put a heart cut-out in the bodice. I've wanted a dress with a heart cut-out for years, so I am happy to finally have one. I had a bit of trouble figuring out how to do the heart, but I managed it, even if the heart ended up not being centred, annoyingly!
