Just in time for fall! My new sundress! But since I live in Los Angeles, Ill be wearing this at the beach while yall are freezing your butts off. And how about those new glasses, right?





Id been eying this cute floral cotton since we got it in, and as we got down to the end of the bolt I finally figured out what I wanted to make. I made my own own pattern, and it was very easy. Starting out, I wasnt sure if this shape would be flattering on me, but I think the careful waist placement keeps it from looking like an ill-fitting sack.


The whole thing slips over my head, no zipper. The waist band is made up of two drawstrings in separate channels, which helps to define the waist and makes the dress look a lot more polished. The faux-placket is a silk-cotton blend, which has a nice subtle sheen. The wooden heart buttons are a little more saccharine than I normally like, but they were too cute to pass up.
