Skeleton Closet: Marking The Occassion

With our 1st year wedding anniversary not more than a few days behind us, and my birthday coming up full steam; my hubby, in all his sweetness, ignored the throbbing of his tired feet and legs, and took me out for a day full of fun the following day after his return home.
I have this stinging inclination to boast about how much he went through, only to go through some more on my account... but I'll just leave it with, I'm a very lucky gal! My actions are not without gratitude, of course...

Edited to add:
My birthday isn't that soon! But I thank you for the early wishes nevertheless. It's still in June, but since the month is flying by it'll be right in front of us more than quickly, heh. He combined the two occasions because I don't think there will be a chance to go out like this when my birthday does come around.

Anyway, as promised, I shall reveal the outfit I was to wear for our celebration of one year of wedded bliss that I spent it planning and sewing during my week alone:


The fact it is very lolita was nearly unintentional. I guess I imagined it more "cute halloween addict", than "halloween lolita"... which if you really think about it, there's not much of a distinction between those two ideas...


The neck bow tie is not originally drafted into the pattern, but with an itty bitty teeny weeny bit of savvy, I added it in there. The skirt itself was drafted by me from the memory of one I once saw; it's a tad wrinkly... it was a long drive home!

This was also a chance to bust out my knee high pumpkin socks which have barely seen the light of day because I don't didn't have an outfit that suited them well enough.


What I am wearing:
  • Blouse: self-made
  • Skirt: self-made
  • Socks: dollar store
  • Shoes: local flea market

      Heh, I hope I get a chance to even do something FOR Halloween, it's very slim pickings here in this town-- I'd be lucky if there was an event other than my hubby's birthday to dress up for.

      I've been dying to wear these socks properly-- I must confess that there were times at home where I'd just put them on to prance around the house in them! Yeah, I love Halloween themes that much >.<

    1. Thank you, darling =D

      I feel like the only thing you need is the passion and drive to begin sewing, and you've already won half the war! The other half is investing in the equipment, hehe =S

      Sometimes it crossed my mind-- I used to make circle skirts in abundance when I was younger. My body certainly hasn't changed much at all since then... so maybe I *should* start incorporating it more XD

      I saw the fabric at Joann's last Halloween, I bought myself several yards of it, but until this blouse, I couldn't figure out what to make with it =P

  8. Cute Hallowe'en Addict - that's funny! You really did a lovely job on the outfit. I can't believe you drafted the skirt from memory!

    Happy belated anniversary and an early happy birthday, Madame MM! Because it's inevitable I'll forget to say it on the 24th. ;o)
