Pixie Dress

the other day I made a pixie skirt, so today I thought of making a pixie dress. First I needed something to wear underneath that was light and I wouldn't get too hot in and then I remembered;
pj pants!!!
These were my emergency pj bottoms if I were to spend the night at a friends, but rarely had to use them.

Now for the main event
totally raided out local thrift stores for scarves, belts and fabric
The fun part was mixing the patterns and colours and then cutting them all in half to have enough for front and back
tank top
I happen to have a few tank tops handy that I saved for projects.
adorable belt
The belt was all sparkly, and had mini mirrors but was way too short, I was gonna add it as a band and team it up with another belt but decided to just cut it in half and add it to the pile.

I put the tank on and placed dots on where I thought the skirt part would go.
pin pin pin
I got about half way through the pinning process when I thought this seemed wrong. I tried it on(pricking myself of course) and realized it hung lower from the weight so decided to pin them up higher.
so pretty
All the pretty scarves in a row all pinned waiting to be sewn, I decided to try a new stitch, the zig zag! Man that was scary and made a few errors but I think it turned out pretty cute.
ready to dance in the forest
I might add a few felt flowers to the neck line just to add a little extra, but I can't wait to wear this to Shambhala :D
