Lovely Day in the Neighborhood Dress

~ Just hanging out with my new Buddy ~

That's the name of the pink beauty parked at the curb.  No, it's not really mine.  I'm just pretending.




Think anybody will mind if I move in a little closer?...


~ ahhh, sweet ~

Oh yea, it's about the clothes.  I made this awhile ago and never got it photo-ed, etc.  The dress is from a Mizono pattern, Vogue 1410.  The dress is cool, because it buttons up inside at the side seams so it can be worn ankle length, knee length or as a tunic.  The bolero is a very modified version from Simplicity 4192.  I just picked up that lovely light mauve coach purse at my neighborhood yard sale for $4.


~ and I'm off...  ~

But first, a parting shot of my new-to-me Trippen sandals from ebay. 

~ woo-hoo! ~


...to Patti and the Visibles at Not Dead Yet Style,  Catherine's I Will Wear What I Like, and Cherie's Shoe and Tell.  Plus, I think I have some neutral and black going on in there for Anne's 52: Pick me up.  Yea.  That about covers it.  See you there!

    1. Yes to those colors. The pattern is an abstract landscape, kind of Halloween-like. I don't even carry purses, but it was so pretty.

  4. Great outfit - and the scooter accessorises it perfectly.

  5. Dammmit woman, I tried on that style of Trippens at a store last year, but there was no way I was paying $400 for a pair of sandals. I love dresses or skirts that let you adjust the length, and this one has such a cool pattern. You definitely need a Vespa ;)

    1. Well, you can be sure I didn't pay anywhere near that for mine.

      I just finished making the same dress for a friend (mother of the groom) only in silk chiffon, lined with silk chiffon. omg it was impossible to sew. I ended up hand sewing much of it. But it looks beautiful.
