I’m going on my fourth year of having this dress, and I went through my archives to find the very first time I wore it. My mother made it for me when we found the fabric, I had told her I just wanted a big dress that resembled a very large tshirt in the way it was cut. But the colors of it made me miss my old Nevada watercolor sunsets.
I brought the dress out on a sunny day while I was still in Southern California
Dress: made by my mom. Tights: no name. Shoes: Elizabeth and James from the swapmeet.
Don’t even ask me how I convinced a guy at our top secret swapmeet in Southern California to sell me these Elizabeth and James shoes for $20, I’m still in shock.
It makes me so happy to have a few things littered through my wardrobe that have been made just for me by my own mom. She makes her own clothes all the time, she is very wonderful – the reason I know how to sew, crochet, and know how to do other little crafty things. I’m going to try to round up all of the things she’s made me for another post.
