This African fabric has had sew many lives! It started out as a skirt then it was cut up into another top and now it has come to life in this cute little number. The denim in the skirt bottom is all re-fashioned denim. I have tons of old denim to work with so I try to use it as often as I can. I like the different hues of the denims mixed with this orange top, something you would not normally put together. This is a super cute summer dress that can be dressed up or down, you can rock a pair of heels or sneakers with this little number. This dress is a mixture of two patterns, Butterick 5982 for the bottom and Simplicity 1873 for the top.
Today we went outside on our street to take more photos and low and behold the wind was kicking our butts! I was like damn it, I give up! We took a few pictures of my FRESH PRESSED dress, blowing in the wind but what I decided to was post them ALL....so here is a picture heavy post with two different sceneries, all because of WRINKLES!
[Above.... A few shots in front of Mi' Casa nicely pressed dress & Below... are the pictures we took in the city the same dress not pressed....don't get me wrong the dress is still the bomb, just a little wrinkly [real word I swear]...... go ahead go back to the pictures at the top and see if the dress is wrinkle free, go head!]
[I know you're probably saying, the dress was not that bad and you're probably right but in my eyes I needed it pressed....carry-on]
