under the influence


I made this dress when i was under the influence of warmer weather.
I'm not quite ready to let winter go, but a couple days of sunny, warm air had me frolicking about 
in bright colors
A few days later (in typical Kansas fashion) the temperature dropped 30 degrees in an hour and it was snowing again.

I did what i do best; got the pattern for one dollar and the fabric on sale.

Daisy likes to sleep while i sew.










I dearly love winter, but

of the green, green grass of spring!'

That is such a lovely dress! You look beautiful - well done!

Wow you made that?! It looks amazing! I've always wanted to sew a dress but I'm rather intimidated. I love your photos so much. The two you took of yourself remind me of vintage photographs you might find while rummaging through a hatbox of memories at your grandmother's house. :)

Excellent fabric choice for this timelessly pretty dress. I think that avocado-esque shades like this get far too little play in the fashion world these days. One say them more in the 20s-60s, but rarely so in women's clothing (especially) nowadays (be it modern styles or vintage ones). Wonderful job on this creation, honey, it looks gorgeous on you.

*PS* Thank you very much for your terrifically nice comment on yesterday's post. I sincerely appreciate that you recognize the time and effort that goes into a post of that size.

oh my HEAVENS that dress is stunning!! I cannot believe you got the fabric for only a buck, that seriously looks like something I could get from Modcloth. I'm super impressed! And boo for the snow coming back- le sigh.

My goodness are we twins?!? Here is a brief list of the things that we have in common: I am a teenager, a vintage lover (in the extreme. especially the 40s), I have three dogs that look exactly like your dog, I am an aspiring mandolinist and bluegrass lover, and most importantly, a born-again Christian. I will definitely follow this blog, and thank you so much for creating it! :)
