Los Angeles, Cal...
Based loosely on BHLDN’s Yarrow-In-Flower dress, which is a ridiculous $350 and dry clean only and too short for my taste. I made my own lace top and yellow skirt (versatile separates!) for $7, from washable materials, so I’m pretty happy, even if my version doesn’t look quite as upscale as the original. The top was traced from a favorite tee, and the skirt is just a gathered rectangle. I used a thrifted bedsheet, so I was able to take advantage of the already existing deep hem.
