Back in August I made the Saltspring dress by Sewaholic and knew that I would make another one, it was just a matter of finding the right fabric. When Mood Fabrics did an online sale I scored with this Hawaiian jersey fabric at $5 a yard! I knew that I had to use it for a Saltspring, it was fate.
I was concerned with how heavy the dress would be seeing as the fabric weighs a lot more than the lawn I used in my first version. The straps could easily stretch out and I didn't want that, so I e-mailed Caroline at Sewaholic because she had just made a knit version of the dress. Within a day Caroline e-mailed me a bunch of awesome suggestions for stabilizing the straps and I ended up using her idea of using twill tape in the seam. Thank you for helping me again, Caroline!
The jersey makes the front and back necklines a little droopy, but I kind of like the effect!
On to the "wannabe Kardashian" part of the blog title. Ok, you guys, don't laugh at me, but I kind of wanted my hair to look like Kim Kardashian's new blonde color. Yes, I'm serious! My talented friend, Amy, cut and dyed my hair a few weeks ago and I'm happy with the new look. I'm not as blonde as Kim, but I think the light brown color is more flattering. I love the cut, but I'm still trying to figure out how to style it. The weird part is shampooing my hair and then forgetting for a split second that my head feels ten pounds lighter and I don't need as much hair product haha.
