The Whimsical Dress

Dress: Designed, drafted, and made by me!

I started working on this dress in January for my annual party dress. The lace skirt, underskirt fabric, and the printed skirt fabric were all from my stash and the fabric flowers were made in colours from the skirt out of chiffon and organza.

Please excuse the indoor photos, the temperature has really dropped and there was no way I could stand outside for photos!

The CEO at my work asked me if I had clothes at a boutique in town anywhere, I wish! One day...

Cardigan: Made by my Grandma
Dress: Thrifted
Fleece tights: Winners
Boots: Aldo

I found this dress last weekend while in Edmonton with some girlfriends, the fact that the label says petite makes me think this was probably supposed to be at least a midi length for the originally intended purchaser? Strangely enough it sits at my waist just fine. It has almost a batwing style sleeve I will happily show off in the future when it's above zero and fleece lined tights aren't necessary. 

I've thrifted some real gems in the last while so I need to get on my blog posting!

If you're an Albertan I hope you've had a great long weekend. I'm off to the mountains to enjoy all the snow today!
