Mix It Up Monday is all about things that are different from the norm, and I feel this e-mail we received was just that, but in a oh so delightful way!
Patty sent us her creation and it isn't a Pinstrosity or a Pin-Different, it is a definite Pin-Win and well I know we will have some readers that will really enjoy this!!
This Doctor Who inspired dress is really pretty (even if you aren't a big Doctor Who fan this is just elegant!).
Here is Patty's version, enjoy!!!
"So I don't know about you, but I <3 Doctor Who! I found this amazing TARDIS dress on Pinterest. This girl went all out from the sketch and I thought, I could do that!
So I set to work. I just wanted to make it so I could say I had one, but I also wanted to wear it in time for a reception that I was receiving in my honor (It's a long story). I tried to stay true to the original but I wanted to make it my own. I hit a lot of snags along the way: the windows were incredibly crooked, the bodice didn't fit, I bought an invisible zipper yet there was a regular one inside the package, the iron-on transfer burned my pillowcase, and I ended up having to remake the windows and the bodice all over again.
The windows are still a little crooked, but I am very happy with it overall. I wore a key necklace to pay homage to how the Doctor opens his Time And Relative Dimension In Space"
Pretty Snazzy eh?! I think she did a GREAT job!! Thanks for sharing Patty!!
So to all our Doctor Who fans, what do we think? Fabulous huh?!
Have a great Monday!
