Katarina Take 2 Dress

The last photo shoot did not do either of us any justice.  So let's go to Round Two.

Ready?

Ding!

~ ooo, ooo, apparently I'm not ready ~




~ getting better...~

Anyway, this is the Katarina Dress pattern from Tina Givens, modified of course.



~ with a bonus back view ~

We're on our way back home from a delicious breakfast at the corner cafe.  I had an omelet with fresh artichoke, asparagus, portobello mushroom and asiago cheese with a side of fresh fruit.  mmmm, I'm hungry again.


ah, the details:

~ the back casings for elastic ~



~ a lovely wooden flower brooch ~



~ double cargo pocket with nice button ~




~ and uncalled for, additional pocket ~



~ les shoes from ebay ~



C'est fini folks.  Except for the main attraction of meeting up with Patti and the Visibles at Not Dead Yet Style, Catherine at I Will Wear What I Like and Cherie's Shoe and Tell when they go live.  See you all there!
Hey, while I'm at it, Let's do Sydney Fashion Hunter too.

  1. Don't you hate it when you're not ready but the camera is? You look great in all of these - and after that delicious breakfast, you probably are as happy as a clam at high tide. Love the new dress, xox

  6. So much to love here! I love the outer casings for the elastic!! The three rows are wonderful, and make it a statement. I will definitely be copying that!! Extra pocket? There's no such thing!! All pockets are essential. I love the print and the up-scale housedress vibe. Perfect for summer and I can imagine layering this later. Once again, you've made my day. xoxo

    1. Housedresses are the way to go, in my opinion. It's always my day when you show up, Jean.

  7. Those not-ready shots usually have the most life. I like this one. And your dress - yes! verrrry nice. Never can have too many pockets. And I love the back detailing. Plus, I join the crowd when I say I love the fabric choice for this.

    1. Thanks Coco! You've certainly made my day. Especially after I just found out Bunny earmarked many of my makes on 2 of her mean-spirited pinterest boards. Why do people feel the need to do things like that? And I've had her site on my side bar forever! Well, I'll not be recommending her anymore.
