30DoC: Anniversary Gifts...

Friends, I must make another confession:  I do not celebrate anniversaries in the traditional sense.  Seeing as I am still unmarried, I don't follow the traditional anniversary calendar with the Rob.  For our upcoming three year anniversary, I'm going to be running a race dressed as a mermaid.  And then we're going to Hogwarts.  Definitely not traditional.

However, keeping this upcoming anniversary/half marathon in mind, I need something to wear (besides the purple seashell sports bra). So, I'm altering this challenge a bit to be: What I Would Wear On My Totally Nontraditional Anniversary.

I took this nightgown that had fallen into my possession and decided I wanted a flowy tunic thing:

I sliced a foot of fabric off of the bottom, used the Sew Weekly sleeve pattern, and made a fabric belt to cinch in the remaining fabric.  It's sheer, so I'm wearing a tank top underneath, but this will be perfect for the summer months when it's stupidly humid outside.

 Close up of the lace detail.  Rob says it looks a little old fashioned, but that's what I like about it.  

See?  It's so comfortable I could sleep in it or do my "back up the bus" move.  Beep beep beep.

Have a fabulous day all!!


  1. Oooh, that's so pretty! I love the lace detail, too. But I'm the one who loves Granma fashion! :)

  2. Adorable! Love that lace detail. Happy non-traditional anniversary:)
