Tie Me Up

I've had some Michael Miller White Garden Collage fabric sitting in my desk drawer for a few weeks now, winking at me every time I reach in to pull out a different fabric. Last night at 10:30 I realized that with Labor Day quickly approaching, I needed to make my garment, and soon. Soon turned out to be this morning. I cut out the dress before I went to bed, and before work this morning I stitched it together. I came sauntering in this morning with a new dress and a smile.

I'll update the photos at a later date. In the meantime, this self-shoot in the company bathroom will have to do.
Don't you hate when you look in the mirror and think your hair, face, arms, etc. look awesome, then you get a picture back, and it's a YIKES moment? Yeah...

Adorable dress!

I totally have those moments when you think you look so cute and every hair is just right and then you try to take a self-portrait and you suddenly don't feel cute anymore.
