Halloween: Kimmy Schmidt!!

Hopefully you've seen the Halloween Sneak Peak I posted a couple weeks ago. 

Here's the final costume, with my partner-in-crime!!

I'm Kimmy Schmidt from the Netflix Original Series, The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and my friend is another character, Xanthippe. 

Here's the inspiration for the costume: 

Not everyone recognized the costume, but it was a big hit among those who did!

Blue and White Striped Dress

You all have seen this pattern plenty of times before. 

This fabric was picked up during at Fabric Outlet, but I don't think it was during a 40% off sale, which may come as a shock. I hope you were sitting down when you read that. 

I made this dress all in one night, and left the hems unfinished because I wanted to wear it the next day. I originally intended to finish the hems later, but I like the unfinished look for this casual dress.

Also, the dress shrunk in the wash and I don't want to risk hemming it. It might be just a little to short after that. 

The neckline also stretched in wash (I forgot to wash the fabric before cutting!! Auugghh!!), so it flips out sometimes, but I don't mind so much. Casual dress, and super comfy. I'm not too concerned about those little details. 

It's nice and loose too, making it a great piece to wear when San Francisco has hot days. (hahaha, that was a joke, what is weather?)

And the back neckline is finished with this nice pop of color!

An update about updating (that was lame, I know): I'm going to cut back to a post every other Wednesday until I have more of my college applications out of the way. Next up, you get to see my final Halloween costume!

See you in 2 weeks!
