Description

I named this mermaidian dress after Blue Orchid by the White Stripes just because it’s a beautiful name for a clever song. If you recognize the dress, it’s also a creation on my other account, Milliesewly. I simply took newer, more beautiful photos. It’s a very modified version of the Sadie pattern.

    Love this! The buttons down the back are a really sweet touch. It looks very Anthropology-esque. The embellishments you added look great! :-)

    This is the best!! SO cute! I love the shape of the dress and the applique you did. Even the button-up back, I love it! Looks breezy and great for summer!
