Late to the Party





Outfit Details: Jacket- Dear Creatures; Dress- Handmade (Built by Wendy pattern); Tights- We Love Colors; Shoes- Vintage

This is my first dress from the Built by Wendy Dresses book. And I love it! Technically, it’s not done. The pattern calls for toggle closures on the front. But I’m unsure if I even want to add them. I rather like it just like this.

I’m pretty proud of this one. It’s the first dress that I have made that’s (nearly) perfect. I even did the Peter Pan collar pretty well.



I apologize for the lame indoor photos. We had another long day of overcast rain. It led to something good though! Snow! I think I’m still in the honeymoon stage with the snow. I’m not expecting to be this excited for very much longer.

A while back I won a giveaway on the lovely Maria’s blog, Lulu Letty. It was a $25 store credit to the Etsy shop Sew Shoe Me. I ended up getting these beauties with my winnings! they are vintage Evan Picones.  My feet are abnormally wide, so it took a little bit of stretching and wearing around the house till they would fit comfortably. But I really like them.


Have a great Friday everyone! Anyone have any amazing plans that I can live vicariously through?
