Finally! I am back with an outfit post! I have been sadly remiss in this area as I had other things that were scheduled and couldn’t be moved. Rest assured. . . I have not given up on the fashion side of this blog! And it shall be coming back full force in the next few weeks as we transition into spring.
That being said, I am so thrilled to finally be sharing with you my most favorite dress in the whole wide world. I was walking through Hobby Lobby, trying to have blinders on so that I wouldn’t get tempted to buy any fabric. The struggle is real. I glanced over at their seasonal rack and swooned. Right there in the Hobby Lobby. My mouth was hanging open, I had stars in my eyes and I was all but drooling over this fabric. Visions of 50’s style dresses made from its fabulous floral decadence danced before my eyes. And guess what? There was JUST ENOUGH fabric to make a dress. I think it was made to be! I had the pleasure of wearing it to our Easter gathering and I felt so elegant, old-fashioned, and special. What made it even better, is that I made it my own self!
It has lots of twirl to it. Swoon.
After making it, I came across a tiny fitting issue, and fixed it with darts at the neckline. They blend in perfectly and I am so happy that they didn’t take away from the cut at all.
