Burnt Gold Autumn

Hello everyone! Long time no see, hope you're all enjoying the last leg of the weekend I'm not ready for it to be over. I've been very busy with school and other personal matters and the fact that I've been extremely strapped for funds so I haven't gotten a chance to sew anything.

However lately I've been trying get more fall colors or should I say I've been more attracted to fall colors as you've seen with my previous post so I am pleased to introduce my newest creation Bette.
And did I mention I cut my hair? :) Well I digress, this is Bette the first dress I made with sleeves in a while too bad the weather is too hot to fully enjoy her.
I created her using this pattern below.
The funny thing is Bette didn't come out entirely like the pattern shown but that doesn't mean she's any less great if anything she has her own little special charm to her.
Here's a clearer shot of her on the dress form. I got the fabric of course from Joann's and it is 100% cotton. I didn't have a whole lot of trouble creating her and it was actually very fun since I haven't been able to sew in a while.
With my short hair I think it compliments the dress wonderfully and its actually great having short hair though I don't believe I fit the vintage pinup aesthetics but I like to think I make it work. :)
As you can see I had a little fun with this photo shoot :)
Bette is more of a quite sophisticated lady, work wear depending on the job.
Well I hope you guys enjoyed and I hope to share with you another one of my creations soon
Ja ne!
