May the 4th be with you

It’s just a star wars thing we share.

Mr V got his wife-made shirt a few years ago using a vintage Vogue pattern. He loves his BBQ shirt and only wears it on special occasions, like today.

Yes he looks uncomfortable because I asked him to cross his arms. Some women are so pushy!

Two days ago I realised today is a Friday and I really wanted to wear my own Stormtrooper shirt.

So I grabbed McCalls 5433 and made my own Stormtrooper shirt to wear ‘business casual’.

Oh dear. That’s just us.

The last jedi

December brought us the next episode of Star Wars – The Last Jedi.

Last year Spotlight was getting rid of this classic Star Wars print.

I made this dress to watch the movie. We saw the movie before Christmas and we stayed in town that night.

I like wearing this dress because it has shape without feeling tight.

I used Burda 7111 that I picked up from a visit to Pitt Trading.

This pattern is designed for softer woven fabrics so using this Star Wars cotton fabric wasn’t the best choice for testing but I used it anyway.

As you can see here, I’ve since made this dress in a softer digital print remnant bought from Pitt Trading.

The dress sits much better with this softer fabric.

I washed my Star Wars dress and the colour from the neckline trim ran, so I made it again after also pre-washing the petersham tape. I no longer have this print in my stash and I’m happy with that outcome.
