PS I made this

I swear that I'm much, much happier than I look here. (Although it is really a sad moment when you have to leave Cal's Bar because you ran out of money drinking $3 beers.)

Dress, handmade; cardigan, clothing swap; socks, Target; boots, vintage.
The bike is a 2011 Surly Cross-Check named Boyfriend.

You guys, I made this dress. Ok, "dress" might be overstating it- it's essentially a wool shroud devoid of any fasteners, darts, or anything else requiring skill. And yeah, the neckline is a little wonky, and I definitely didn't iron the seams flat. But! For something like $12 in wool-blend fabric and a crafternoon at a friend's house, I have new shrouds for work, plus the smirking satisfaction of replying to any compliments on my dress with "oh thanks, I made it."

It looks fabulous on you. You only notice the imperfections because you know about them. I bet to everyone else, they are invisible. We seamstresses are so hard on ourselves - but think about all the imperfect items you've paid top dollar for!
