you, me and the bourgeoisie

details: pink dotted dress (zara), wicker hat (jcpenney; thanks kelsi!), gold mary-jane kitten heels (dollhouse), silver petite bow necklace (swap with katrina; visit her etsy shop)

i got this dress from Zara when i was in san francisco a few weeks ago (it was on sale!). it reminds me of my american girl doll, samantha, but whatever. i thought it was really cute even though it looks as if 10-year-old victorian girls would wear it.

anyway, sheppi asked me if i could make a custom dress for her to wear at an upcoming band competition, so of course i said 'yes'! it was my first time making a more formal dress in this style, but it came out great! i just might have to make one for myself (if i have a fancy event to go to in the future! too bad there's no prom for 20-somethings). i also did custom black convertible dresses for her and her bandmates for their group competition.

here's the dress i made for her:

and sheppi was so sweet, she even brought me cupcakes from frosted in a few of my favorite flavors (cookies & cream, chocolate/vanilla, hazelnut, and toffee). i sampled all of them and shared with my family.

sorry for being slow at responding to comments and catching up with blog-reading! i will get to it tonight, promise. i've been doing a lot of sewing and working on orders lately (yay!) so it's been a bit busier than normal.

Why hello pretty ladyyy! You do look like a dolly! In the best possible way. That lippy and your smile in the second photo is sublime. You look so so beautiful.

And how cool did that dress turn out? Amazing. Love the colour and the bow on the back especially. Can't wait to see sheppi rock it!
