While Hanna's nails were fun, bright, and summery, they're definitely not something I'd wear every day. I'm not a huge fan of yellow nail polish and have to be in the right mood for bright pink. I did, however, love the pattern, so I decided to try out different colors! This combo was definitely my favorite! I used China Glaze's Princess Grace in replace of the yellow and OPI's Sahara Sapphire for the pink!

After about a week of sewing myself clothes, I realized I needed a dress form if I ever wanted it to work out. One of the perks of sewing my own clothes is that I don't have to spend the money on overpriced items. But even with all the money saved, I could not afford a dress form, especially an adjustable one that would fit my shape. So instead, I decided to... make... my... own. I could not have done this without the amazing tutorial from Threads. Check it out here!

So excited to share this dress that I made! I got the materials at Jomar so the total comes in at way under $5, plus I've got tons of fabric left over! It's basically a light gray circle skirt with a darker gray, somewhat sheer circle skirt on top of that. The top is a heathered peach tank (I used my favorite tank top as a template and traced it onto the fabric). The seam where the tank and skirt meet is not very pretty, so I made a quick belt out of the under skirt fabric to conceal it! In total, it probably only took 2-3 hours and I'm super pleased with how the dress turned out!
