Northborough, Ma...






i recently got a serger and was super excited to work on my first knit dress! i am very pleased with how it turned out. the knit is a medium weight interlock (organic even!) and is so soft and comfortable. it’s like wearing a sweatshirt! the bodice is self-lined and the skirt is lined in a turquoise tricot material.

i couldn’t decide on the best tights & shoes combo… feel free to weigh in!

as always, more on my blog: notes from a mad housewife

    Very cute! I like the red tights most and and would be perfect with red belt! But the dress alone is good too, you did a good job!

    I’d say all the shoe/tights combos are great.
