A New Handmade Love

dress: made by me    shoes: urban outfitters
The second I spotted this fabric in LA I knew that it was begging to be a well tailored dress with plenty o' volume in the skirt, and I just could not be more thrilled with how it turned out. I vow to wear this as many a fall/spring/winter/summer outfit (oooh she so versatile). Also I plan to never let Matt and Indie touch me in it because this thing is WHITE. I can picture it now, I'll ward messy hands and puppy paws off with the jab of my bleach pen, because me and this dress of mine, we're going places I tell you what :)

Another one for the store some day in the future?!
