Random Fashion Musing:

Lately, I have really gotten into the idea of dickies or lace collars. Now that warmer weather (ugh!) is looming, they're the perfect thing to keep my gothy antique aesthetic going while allowing me to not die of heat stroke.

Current favorite leaving-the-house outfit:

- Floofy skirt(s)
- Dickie
- Black tank top
- Lace overdress

Still all lightweight, breathable fabrics, but even fancier-looking that previous summergoth wear! And it turns out that there are a BUNCH of different dickie/collar styles on Amazon, because fast fashion or something.

Next, I need to look into making my own from blouses I find at the thrift store. Because I totally need more projects right now, yep.

Because we don't have enough other projects going on, oh no. So SURE, let's start appliquéing fluttering scraps of fabric to the hem of the frock coat that has the lapels covered that way. Sounds great. Go right ahead.

(Actually, this idea isn't as bonkers as it seems - it's a sewing project I'll be able to work on with minimum focus. On the days/nights where I can't brain at all, but just flopping on the couch and watching something will drive me mad with inactivity, this will be a good middle ground.)

Darling [livejournal.com profile] kambriel, thank you again for the giant box of scraps. Who knows, I may even use them all up on this!
