23 for 23 Goal List

Ok, I already had one goal list that isn’t that old. But…due to some issues in my life I have not stuck to it at all. However I am determined. So I made a new goal list, 23 goals for my 23rd year, tomorrow is my 23rd birthday. For this goal list I have a check sheet so I can see if I didn’t keep up with something, and I plan on taking photos of the things that can be photographed. Hopefully these two things will help me stick to it.

Pale Blue Jumperskirt

So this is my new lolita  jumperskirt. It’s a pale blue with white dots. It has white ribbon trim and a double tier skirt. The skirt isn’t as full as I usually make them. I know it doesn’t look very good on the mannequin. I’m hoping to do a full photo shoot when we finally have some snow, cause I think it will look pretty against the white background.

Lolita Nightgown

So I was this nightgown pattern in a lolita magazine and I NEEDED to have it. I just loved how girly and pretty it was. So I used the magazine pattern and was a little dubious. I worried that it would be a huge challenge. Actually the nightgown went together great. It fits beautifully and was super easy to sew. I definitely plan to make a second one. I wore it last night and it’s comfortable. Best of all it makes me feel like a Jane Austen heroine.
