This is my project in response to my sisters’ challenge and I am delighted to post it! This simple dress is made from an old fitted bed sheet that I bought at Goodwill. Though I was traveling at the time, I just could not pass up the beautiful red color, so I found a way to shove it in my backpack for the trip home. Each rose is handmade, as I had been hankering to try making the trendy rolled fabric roses that are popping up all over etsy. And though it is a deep red, the material is a lightweight cotton – perfect for the summers!
I am currently interning at NASA Ames in CA, so my roommate and I ran all over the research park to find fun locations for the photos!
