Ah, easy like a Sunday morning. This weekend has been pretty nice; a full weekend off to start, which is always wonderful. I got my first dress pattern EVER pinned this week and Daniel's grandmother is going to help me cut it out and get it started. I am beyond excited. This will finally give me the instruction I need to get started on making dresses and skirts out of my own fabric. I've made a mint version of my moth print and I am very happy with it. I have ordered the pink version in an organic cotton sateen (such a beautiful and quality fabric) and eagerly await it's arrival. After it comes in I will start working on a dress, pronto! For now though, I wanted to post an outfit featuring one of my favorite vintage accessories- enamel flower pins! Every flea market and antique mall I explore- I am scouring and hunting down these bold and colorful pins. They add so much "pop" to an outfit, and really give it that extra touch of fun and retro.
This dress totally looks vintage but it's actually from ASOS. I found it last summer and kept putting off purchasing it and then Daniel gave it to me for Christmas (so sweet, haha). By then it was ridiculously on sale so it was probably good that I waited. It is hard to see, but it actually has small cut outs in the front and in the back- just the right amount without being too revealing. The pattern is very reminiscent of the flower power 60s and the fabric is nice and light, perfect for Summer. I am so glad I can finally wear it!
