Friday Favourites: What to Make This Weekend - Vacation Edition

Hello Lovely,

April is over!!! There's only one more day in this month. Did you SPRING INTO ACTION? Or was it more like you just barely survived? If you were working super hard like me, then CONGRATULATIONS! You are entitled to a vacation! If not, don't feel bad, because May is all about unwinding from exams and preparing for the summer months! And you know what happens in summer. That's right, VACATION! And speaking of vacations, I'll be on vacation next week. I know! I'll miss you too! I'll be gone for two weeks because I'm travelling. Long-distance girlfriend duty calls! I'll be meeting my boyfriend's mother for the first time. It's so nerve-wrecking! Will she like me? Will she approve me of me dating her son? Will I want to murder her? Just kidding about that last one. And we'll be in St. Croix too, because that's where he's from. So I'm double nervous, because nothing will be familiar. But the good news is, I've never been to St. Croix so I can't wait to explore a new land! (Woy! We comin'!)

In order to prepare and calm my nerves for the trip, I was thinking of tackling different sewing projects (especially now that my machine is fixed) so I that I can wear my own designs while I'm on vacation! I can't always wear T-shirts and jeans you know! Gotta mix it up with a maxi dress or two to really show my sense of style (and also win brownies points because I have a reliable trade, i.e. sewing).

So here are 5 designs I'm looking forward to making (or at least starting) this weekend! I'm also including any available links to the items of inspiration if you're interested in purchasing it!

Can you imagine the impact I would make in this gown?! Don't buy this dress though! The actual product is radically different from what's pictured, which is why I'm opting to make it myself! sammydress | $8.69 Bohemian Style Patterned Sleeveless Porcelain Maxi Dress For Women

No shop information available for this look, but I can see myself making this out of a thrifted tee and jeans and simply hot gluing the gold accents onto the shoulders and legs, making this a less than 5 minute project! If you do make this, I suggest a cold-wash by hand only.
