Pinterest Challenge #6

Before I get on the subject, let me just make a quick note.  was the lucky winner of the first week's sew along on Project Run and Play. She has compiled her favourite creations from the sew along and guess what? My Sad Cat dress was featured too. Thank you Maegen! You totally deserved to win!

Now, let's get to what brought me here. My latest project straight from my pinterest inspiration board was getting a look like the one inspired on the character Robin Scherbatsky from the tv show How I met your mother.

Well, it basicly means I needed a reason to finally refashion a  blue dress I was given. It belonged in time to my sister's mother in law, and of course, it ended up with me like most of all the old fashioned clothes nobody wants anymore. All I know is that this dress came from the USA a long, long time ago when they moved back to Portugal. And it is a so soft and warm knit fabric. 

I can tell you, it was ugly (not as much as the green one though). Well, you decide, see for yourself:

And yes, that's the after! With the blazer as in the inspiration look. I did go outside to get some nice photos taken, but when I took them I forgot why I was taking those photos, and didn't even wear my blazer. lol
I swear I acessorized the overlook with black earings and a large black bag (the one I use everyday, actually!). 

I liked the original neck collar, but it definately had to go. The changes I made were, getting rid of the sleeves (which means I got some fabric left and who knows, I might make anything matchy for G.), shortened the dress and add pleats on the waist line. It fits me just well. 


I used a belt I rarely use to complete my look. I enjoyed wearing it this time, I always feel weird with this belt, don't ask me why. I guess I am not a very belt person, anyway... Too bad I didn't get a single picture where my boots show entirely. They're old, actually it might have been the last time I wore them =( They are high heels and the only reason I still have them, is that I don't own any other pair of heels boots. 


Well, and this was me celebrating that I got to participate in The Sew Off competition!!! ahahah
