Earlier that week I had made a this little pin corsage from a bit of fabric, lace, a silk flower, and string. I really loved the colors and decided to use it as my inspiration for the rest of the dress. The lace I had leftover from my little black dress makeover of the week before, the green eyelet fabric was from who knows where but was in my stash. The idea was to simply wrap the dress in the green fabric but as there was a zipper all the way down the back I had to leave the back open. It ended up looking like a little apron from the back- which I like. Honestly, I don't have very strong couture sewing skills and without a sewing machine I feel a little at a loss to make hems and pleats etc. But I had some fusible tape and some embroidery floss and in the end that was all I needed. Pretty cute and very very fun.
Now for that sweet little brown sundress my mother in law just gave me....
