Sweet Orange

I made this dress from kind of elastic linen. When i first wore it, someone from work said “I really like the dress but I don’t like the fabric” well… I really like the fabric, it’s sort of vintagy, and that woman doesn’t have any fashion sense at all, so that’s fine with me!
These pictures were taken by a pro photographer just before my sister’s wedding during the preparations.

      Thank you… well she is! I actually don’t work there any more, but… she was the oldest woman in the office and always wore these ugly old too tight T Shirts. So I guess I won’t be taking fashion tips from her :-) The fabric is actually very nice. It’s a sort of linen but very soft one. It looks like an old fabric and that’s why I liked it.

    Wow, what a fantastic fit! And who doesn’t love a vibrant orange? It’s so fun, and will carry well into fall.

      Thanks! Well, yeah, I actually did wear it also with a light long top underneath and leggings.

    I like the fabric too. It looks really comfortable and matches the pattern very well.
