Floral explosion dress!

I made this dress a couple of months ago. I had this sateen lying around waiting for the right project to jump out. I saw the Cherry Pop dress made by sewer Grosgrain and knew this was the perfect project!

I took the bodice of my ‘derby day’ dress and the skirt of my wedding cocktail dress and combined i have the two for my ‘explosion dress’!

For the photoshoot- i also wore a vintage pillbox hat, which i found on the internet for a song, which i haven’t found an occasion to wear yet- but trust me i will!

Im still painting my ‘renovators delight’ house- the light was just right in that spot though!

    Sooooooooooooooooooooo pretty! That fabric is divine. Suggestion—leave a little of your hair showing in the front when you wear that hat to help soften the lines of your face and the contrast between the blue and your fair skin.
