Right, yes, so I’ve been really really busy. Really really really really busy I mean. But here, finally, is Science Girl at the NC Museums of Life and Science’s After Hours Event: Science of Eats! Yay!
The fabric was designed by my friend and coworker Janet, but she doesn’t have anywhere for me to link to it, so I’ll have to add that later. (she also took the photos of me, and my hair.) Oh, and what’s that in my hair? Its a stick of asparagus, and some basil leaves. Because I NEVER pick a theme and only take it halfway. (And a carnation, but its February, there are no good red fruits or vegetables you can find in a grocery story at 6pm with only 5 minutes to figure out how you’re going to stick it in your hair. And I think maybe carnations are edible anyways.)
I did the embroidery myself, to add just that little touch to make the dress more like the poster for the event. I got so many compliments for this dress, and its still one of my favorite ones to wear!
The pattern is great and one I’ve used several times. I’ve reviewed it here: Butterick Retro Dress B5603 ★★★★★
