Dogwood Tree

Today I wore the paisley dress I altered. I love its sleeves but it is awkward to wear a sweater with; thankfully, I didn't need one today. I had a spring break last week. It was pretty good. I don't have outfit photos because it was usually close to night when I got dressed and ready. I wore my sequin shorts a lot. Dress- Vintage altered by me, Betsey Johnson belt - filenes basement I tried to show off my cool leopard nails here but they didn't show up too well. My dress in sewing class is almost done. I just need to hem it. I did my first invisible zipper with it. I'm really excited about it. It is a bit larger than I would like but I'm really happy with it. And I'm going to cut out my Star Wars dress tonight and hopefully be done by Friday.

This is a lovely, lovely dress and looks just perfect on you. Is it the mid-length of the sleeves that makes it difficult to pair with a jumper?
Can't wait for the star wars dress!
