I only bought enough for a blouse so I pulled out the Japanese sewing book collection (incidentally, if you're curious about these books, please be sure to check back tomorrow, okay?). I had really fallen for this plaid Toast dress earlier in the week and decided to incorporate my favourite elements from it: the chunky bow and the wide collar. I picked dress 27 from this book and did my best wrangling to add the bow. I think I'm going to change the sleeves. I was so sick of gathers by the time I finished this blouse (they made stitching on the facing a pain, so I did it by hand, which was also a pain considering I was in one of my typically manic rushes to finish) that I didn't feel like gathering the sleeves. I think I need to pull in all this extra volume, though, and I don't really like them as they are now.
It's very smock-like, and it makes me feel huge, but in all honesty I don't need a blouse to help me feel huge. It's pretty much a permanent situation (forgive the bad attitude; I spent some time trying to get some nice pictures of myself in this blouse today and it's left me with this).
Also, I've been wearing red lipstick lately and I think I like it. This is Revlon matte lipstick in "In the Red." I added some gloss overtop for shine.
