buttercup dress - sew fun

It has been a long time since I have sewn anything. So here is my buttercup yellow "drit" (dress/shirt). And of course it had to have a huge ruffle and bow somehow incorporated into it.

spring is in the air

so i haven't posted since november! and a lot of things have happened. jonah proposed in joshua tree in november... in the pouring rain. after returning home we found an antique ring at excalibur estate jewelry. the jewelry shop has taken temporary residence at the paper bag princess on olympic bld. finding the ring at a counter next to racks and racks of vinatge frocks couldn't have been more wonderful.
Linkvisited friends in portland and enjoyed tons of sweet desserts and beer! and inspired by kristina's treasure troves at her casa. found this linen dress at wertz bros in santa monica. i think i might shorten it a bit. it's from a stylist/friend's booth. she also has a website with great finds... www.boholuxe.com
loved the photos from permanent vacation's s/s 09 collection. so sweet and demure!

came across this wallpaper at aztek while working on a work project. and i now need it.

enjoyed receiving this picture from my mom. we are going to see her next weekend. so i will get to meet these hen ladies.
