Meg's Magazine Mash Up 2014: May Issue

Main_medium

This is the first month that I actually felt the heat of the summer, and all I wanted to wear was summer dresses. So this month I decided to Mash Up a sweet dress for myself to wear on those hot summer days. There were many lovely dresses from the May issue and it was a back and fourth between our portrait mini dress and the sweetheart neckline dress… but ultimately I went with the sweetheart dress from our Cabana Cutie pattern collection, and I sure felt like a cabana cutie when this dress was done!
