lazy girls guide to sewing

I got this dress from a charity shop and someone had already sewn lace around the collar.

If you’re British then I’m sure you’ve noticed that I took these pictures WEEKS ago because there’s actual sunlight. Anyway, this is such a cute idea! Thanks, previous owner of an otherwise-unremarkable Primark dress! I’d seriously never have noticed it if not for the lace.

I think there’s something a bit Courtney Love to it – old-timey 1990s Courtney, not the modern day melty-face version of course. Hence the deeply sexy snarling face. Here are some pictures to illustrate my point:

While I was searching for these pictures I discovered that Ms Love has recently held an art show and her paintings are just painfully bad. I’m not a fan of hers but I kind of expected better? Wow, this is petering out rather awkwardly. You should stop reading now and go sew some cute, kitschy lace on an old dress!
