Into the garden, under the ivy

I went to an evil themed party recently, I went as a vampire (original, I know) and I've got a Moulin Rouge themed party next - my outfit will be pretty much the same but with more things feathery, glittery and red. And minus the tears of blood from my eyes.

Under the leaves,
Away from the party,
Right to the rose,
Right to the white rose
For me.
Not sure I like this post, its a bit too messy for my liking...
I've eventually got round to showing you this dress I made. It's a bit of a basic outfit, floral dress and a leather jacket (or should I say "pleather"?).
Really basic sewing: rectangle of Laura Ashley fabric, hemmed and then sewn to form a tube. Which is why it doesn't fit great, but there wasn't much fabric to work with. It was just leftover curtain material in my house.
handmade dress, h&m boys leather bomber jacket, vintage belt
