Rise up this mornin'

I was going to show you the dress I made that I posted a peek of in my last post but then I got a cold and the weather got cold. I'm currently in my pajamas dosed up on codral so I don't much feel like putting on a dress and taking pictures. Instead this is something I wore to work last week when I was feeling fine and the weather was still sunny.  


This vintage dress isn't my usual style but there's something about it I really like. The stripes in the fabric look almost like ribbons. I got it off trademe and someone had taken the hem down leaving a raw edge. The crease line was still there so I hand stitched it back in place while I watched an episode of Justified. Easy as!  


 Dress: Trademe
Shoes: Golden Ponies

  1. Ah I love that dress! I saw it on Trade Me too - I managed to buy four dresses off that seller, whoops. All her stuff was so good. It looks perfect on you, and I love the closeup of the print.
