The week started off with a linen dress with flamingos. This is a dress that I made last summer during the pandemic. This dress is a simplicity pattern that I modified to have a button up front.
Next is the same version of the dress but with a back zipper and I beaded the neckline.
Next outfit was a blouse that I made as a knock off of a jcrew top and some shorts (a pandemic project).
This poodle dress is a Carolina Herrera silk with sketches of her poodle.
This next top is proof that not everything online is great. I really like the design of this – I added a row of beads between layers of the ruffle. That said – the fabric is awful. It’s very scratchy and tough. I tried to wear this but after about 30 min everything was digging into my skin and I put on a tank top instead.
We went on a walk in a nearby park over the weekend and I enjoyed wearing this new tennis skirt. It’s purposefully pleated so that the front has a non pleated section.
This next dress has a fun ribbon print and I beaded little geometric squares to make it a bit fancier.
We also played tennis and I tested out a second new tennis skirt! This was made with scraps from an old project.
Last but not least – here’s some fiddle head ferns and ramps from our local farmer’s market! Yummy!
