Over the weekend, I decided to make like Madonna on a farewell tour and dye my hair blonde. Really, really blonde. It’s dried my hair out and made it sort of fluffy actually, not so much Madonna but more Debbie Harry.
I think I like it. I’m not much of a blonde personality, so I’m looking forward to the dark roots coming in. I might even put in streaks after Christmas. Hmm….purple, pink or blue?
The skirt is a tried-n-true pattern for me, Simplicity 4963. I have a reissue of it that marks it as Simplicity 0699, but the pattern tissue says 4963. I made it earlier this year but have not worn it on the blog yet. If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll recognize this fabric as the twill I used for New Look 6083. I got a lot of mileage out of two yards.
This is one of the best pleated skirt patterns I have found, and the length is a reasonable 16″.
This is one of my go-to goth patterns — you can easily add buckles, D-rings, belt loops or what have you.
I haven’t gotten any actual sewing done due to the holidays. I haven’t gotten anything done. In fact, I’ve been trying to come up with a Christmas menu for two days. Anybody know which side dishes go best with roast beast?
