What a peculiar year this has been! I had so many plans that have had to be adapted and changed a bit. Unfortunately when deciding on what needed to have a pin put in it the blog was on that list. However I have found my groove and have many exciting things to share with you both personally, business wise, and a new pattern collection!
Kristi from George & Ginger designed the most epic Goth collection that has just released! Over the next few days I will show you all the pieces, even some with my mom.
Above you will see the Bedight Bolero, this can be made reversible, this one is not, it is satin. There is also a non ruffle version that has long sleeves and a closure at the neck, I still need to make one of those.
This is the Evanescent dress, the petticoat I am wearing under is not part of the pattern I just liked the poof it added. I feel like both of these pieces can easily be staples its all in fabric choice, I went a bit more Goth with these, I have another dress I will show you later this week that's a bit less so.
So something you should know about me, I grew up with my mom singing 'Where you lead' to me, and while I now know that's a fabulous song by the amazing Carol King, when I was little I just knew it was from Gilmore Girls. I grew up watching much of that show, and falling in love with Stars Hallow, and the entire cast of characters and especially Lorelai and Rory. When making this dress it reminded me so much of A day in the life when they come and take Rory out for the night. When posing with the umbrella, I had an In Omnia Paratus moment and needed to jump off the stairs it just felt right!
Also I do know she was quoting Titanic 😉
