This gorgeousness was a long time coming. I bought the fabric quite early on, really, in my sewing journey - and for one reason. GLOW IN THE DARK STARS. I couldn't not buy it, right? It's a Michael Miller cotton called Star Magic (DG0605-NITE-D), I'm pretty sure I bought it at Fabric.com (I buy a lot there, lets be honest - I'm waiting on some fabric as we speak!).
The photos of this may not be the best - we were losing the light as we shot, but it's a gorgeous mottling of dark blue to black, with stars all over it. The stars, when you have been outside a bit, glow in the dark when you go back inside!
I chose the Belladone by Deer and Doe to make this up in, as I thought it would showcase the gorgeous fabric perfectly. Also, I love pockets! My original grand plan, however, didn't work. I wanted to use glow in the dark bias to complement the stars, but for the life of me couldn't find it anywhere!! I settled for dark blue in the end, it works, but I'm not 100% happy with it. It's the best it can be given the restraints.
Despite not having had the chance to show off the glowing much yet, I adore this dress, it's fit, and it's awesomeness. It's quickly become one of my favourites!
I'll be back soon with more gorgeous things from my wardrobe soon, I promise. They will be very out of order, but they'll be here.
