    Very very cute. I have a red-head too and she doesn’t wear much yellow, so I will have to show her these and inspire her to seek more yellow!

      I used a New Look pattern I picked up at the store. I would have used my own (as I have made a pattern just like this for class) but all of my pattern making supplies and blocks are packed right now. I am in the process of moving. Shift dresses are so easy to make.

    This dress is just adorable and I love the purse, with it, as well.

      Thank you! I love the purse so much, I bought one for myself as well. We got a lot of compliments on them when we were in the Keys.
