I find myself gravitating more and more towards clothes that show up & are noticeable lately, and this dress I made is a perfect example of that. I deliberately searched out the brightest fabric I could at the fabric store last time I was in Duluth, finding some fuchsia linen with a lovely drape.
The dress was fairly simple--I used my basic pattern & lined it with a striped sheet. It has an invisible zipper in back (I love these things!), and I pinned up part of the skirt to add a bit of visual interest.
I wore it today with sandals, but on a cooler day, it looks lovely with black boots & a zip up hoodie or snappy black jacket. :)
I braved the mosquitoes to get these photos... and came out a bit worse for it! I was sure you were going to be able to see the bugs in these photos, they were swarming so much.
My friend cut my hair... exciting! She did an amazing job, and I love this length so much better. It was pretty funny: I was cleaning a cabin and happened to glance in the mirror. I put down my duster, pulled my lower layers to the back, and was like, "I like how this looks. I should cut it." I'm not quite brave enough to try it on my own, though, so on my lunch break I enlisted my friend to help. It's super fun to tease up high & stick things in now!
Oo, bonus close-up glamour shot!
Sorry I've been gone so much lately! Hopefully next month will be quieter for me & I'll be able to update a tad more. <3
