My Luau Dress

It didn't occur to me to this morning that I should mention something about what I wore.

I made the dress myself.  It's Simplicity 2053, dress B.  I made it a few months ago because I enjoy and seem to need projects.  I was just happy to wear it.  The fabric is by Alexander Henry, who has a nice selection of retro prints.

I was a little disappointed at how easy this pattern was.  I sew enough that a real challenge means putting together a monster of a dress from old 18th century patterns or something (which I can do and have done).

The flower is from my first Rockabilly Project on the blog.  The shoes are from...well I don't really remember, but they're made by Curfew.

If you like this dress and want to make yourself something, allow me to show you 4 neat prints from Alexander Henry that you might want to consider.
