It's a Wrap Dress...

 ...I made nearly five years ago out of linen that's become so very soft now.   I just luv it.


~ and here I'm showing off my new ebay shoes ~


~ aren't they divine? ~


~ It makes me feel like a Victorian sweetie or some such thing ~


~ with my Mom's green-eyed fly pin ~


~ But hey, ~

The pattern I used was from the Japanese Sewing Book, Simple Modern Sewing, modified like crazy.

You can see the first time I wore it here and the next time here.  Each time with different accoutrements.  This is the plainest and probably the most effective, I think.  It's the shoes.  yeah.



~ brand new PSKaufman oxfords from ebay for $21.50 ~


I'll be over at Patti's and the Visibles for Not Dead Yet Style and then Catherine's I Will Wear What I Like when they go live.  Come on by.

    1. I'm still in luv with them too. They've got a higher heel than I would usually wear. The addition of the platform and the thickness of the heel keeps them comfy and easy to walk in. mmmmm, brogues.

    2. p.s. I wanted to reply to your shoe post, Gail, but I don't do "Disqus" and it doesn't allow guest posting. Anyway, I was going to say I liked the shoes you were wearing the best!

    1. I know!!! I still think I'm dreaming with this pair. Whatever were people thinking in not bidding for these babies? They're over $300.00 new. And these were new!
