Here’s another recent handmade dress. I pinned this dress, and well, why buy when you can sew?! That’s totally my motto. Initially, I put bust darts, but didn’t like how they looked, so I took them out. It’s a simple style and if I weren’t wearing a necklace, I probably would look like I came from the hospital. HA! Maybe I still do. We rented Mockingjay Part 1 this particular day, and noticed Katniss is wearing a similar style, but in white, when she was released from the medical center. I told Ben, “Look, my dress!” Hospital chic maybe?! Whatever, I still like it.
I have horrible vision and wear contacts all the time. I have a pair of prescription glasses I bought a year ago, and while I love the frame, it hurts my ears after an hour or so, so I rarely wear them (I didn’t discover this until after way past the return/exchange period). Thus, when Firmoo asked if I wanted to try out a pair, I said why not. I thought it would be great to find something that didn’t hurt. I chose these, and when my glasses came in, Brave was so excited because they matched her glasses (they’re non-prescription, but she wears them because Peter Parker, Spider-Man, wears some). I’m happy to report my Firmoo glasses are fine and I have no issues. They make a great pair of prescription glasses and their prices are quite reasonable. The only thing I don’t like is the little lens cloth that comes with it doesn’t wipe the lenses very well, but that’s a minor thing.
