A New Dress

I started this dress before Easter, intending to wear it to church on Easter Sunday.  But life got in the way and I let it go.  It’s not like I had nothing else to wear.  The girls all had new dresses so all was well!

I finally finished the dress and plan to wear it this weekend on a date with my hubby.

I will most likely add a belt.  Didn’t think about it for the photos though.

I love how these flat ruffles look good even when they are ‘mussed’.

And isn’t this necklace swoony?  I have a friend who makes these lovelies.  Want one?  I’ll be doing a post on her stuff soon.  I have a bunch of new stuff that she made.

This is the other necklace I bought from her.  I will probably wear it with something that shows it off a little better but I wanted to snap a quick pic of it.  The dress fabric was called ‘weathered walnut’ but it really looks more grey.  The fabric place also had one that was called grey – might have to get that one too next time I order.

So what do you think?  Like it?  Don’t like it?  Want to know what ‘pattern’ I used to make it?

I linked this post to ‘Freckled Laundry’, one of my very favorite blogs!  Go check it out!

  1. I like it a lot! Love those necklaces – especially the one with 3 flowers, it kind of gets lost on this dress but I like it a lot. Sigh. I just like you a lot. :o) I wanna see this on as well.

    • I like! I think I would like it higher waisted, with a belt. Email me your price, including you ordering the fabric!


  1. […] Right now I’d like to share with you the new hair accessories and necklaces I bought from a friend.  She makes the most darling stuff and I just never seem to have enough   I’ve already shared a couple pics of the necklaces in the post of my new dress. […]

  2. […] Before the dinner party the hostess told me she was hoping everyone could wear white or cream.  And I had neither.  Except I did find a creamy white pullover sweater that has been in my closet for over a year and rarely worn.  I just never had anything it worked right with.  So I decided to turn it into a cardigan sweater and wear it with my ruffled dress.
