Yesterday, I went down to campus to hang out on the benches in the largest grassy area. There were trees, and grass, and dandelions and I got attacked by bugs flying down my boobs and twigs throwing themselves at my knees. It was wonderful.
I also decided to wear my new dress. This is the second dress I've made that is wearable! I've come to think of it as "my valentine dress," probably because it's red. I'm so fucking creative.
The dress was made following Simplicity 2582, version F. I didn't make many changes - left out the zipper and the elastic in the back, since the jersey knit I used was stretchy enough. I've left it unhemmed so far, but it depends how it washes. I really, really hate hemming.
I also got new shoes (photo here) for T's graduation. A nice platform wedge I got from Aldo :3 It was a good find, since most sandals cut the shit out of my feetsees. My poor, poor feet.
Can you image what a bee is thinking as they fly up to a cherry tree in blossom? "HOLY FUCKING SHIT EVERYTHING IS AMAZING WHERE DO I START THIS FLOWER IS AMAZING AND SO IS THAT ONE OH FUCKING SWEET BEEJESUS"
Holdin' onto my crotch so the wind doesn't blow it away. You can't imagine how embarrassing it is to have to chase down a runaway crotch.
If you kind of squint, it looks like these two pictures are actually one picture and that the upper part of the tree has giant flowers on it.
