Alida from Alida Makes is hosting another Sew the Show, and this time I just couldn’t resist. It is one of my favorite shows of all time. One that I have watched when it first came out, and then on re-runs for YEARS.
I think it is safe to say that I have watched every episode at least twice.
I am talking about Friends.
Because that show spanned a decade, there are soooooooooo many different looks to choose from. Plus, the myriad of different characters make it hard to choose. I have hair much in the style of Ross, and originally thought about that episode when he wore leather pants, as my inspiration.
But the thought of me in leather (fake or real) didn’t look pretty in my head.
So I thought about one of my favorite episodes. Do you remember that one where we found out that Phoebe was married to a gay Canadian in the Ice Capades?
I know this outfit isn’t typical for Phoebe’s character, but I have always loved it.
For my outfit, I didn’t reproduce it, but kept some of the elements the same. I made it tunic length, it has a bold pattern, and I gave it a sixties mod vibe (at least I think so).
**I actually very rarely EVER show my legs, so put on some sunglasses and have a gander, cause these powdery appendages will be covered by some yoga pants the next time I wear this. It’s like staring into the sun, people.
Let me tell you a little about this dress. Do you recognize that fabric? It was black and white, and I used it here for my niece’s dress. Well, I threw it in a purple dye bath, and I LOVE the results!
*my oldest who was photographing me asked me to “never do that pose again”. Ha! It’s fun to embarrass my teen. And so easy.
As for the pattern, I used Sew Mama Sew’s FREE pattern for the Adelaide Tank. I made a few changes (as I do). I lengthened it to tunic size. I also decided to hem the edges instead of using bias tape. And lastly, I added pockets. I love me some pockets.
I noticed some of the other sewists in the link party posing with their giant cups of coffee (from Central Perk, of course), and I thought it felt like we were all sharing a virtual cup together.
Here’s to Friends!
