South Ogden, Uta...
This is my giraffe print that looks more cheetah-ish brand new dress. I used Vogue 8511, which is a beautiful pattern, and took a little out of the upper bust area. The fabric is a super silky print from JoAnns clearance bin. It is lined on the top half with a bright yellow exposed zipper. I also added sleeves to make it more of a transition summer to fall piece. I may or may not have worn it to church before noticing they aren’t exactly the same length—oops! Hand-stitched the skirt and sleeve hems. It wears perfectly with the thrifted brown belt. I did the pleats backwards (outside instead of inside) but, it looks good enough I think it can be termed a “style choice” instead of a mistake:)
