I had no idea the dress (July BWOF #124) was sooooooo long. Here's my review. You can't tell from the picture, because the model is frolicking in the waves and has the dress hiked up past her knees. But, since maxi dresses are still "in", I think I can get away with this. It's a lot of print for me to wear (neck to ankle), but I love the colors (black/white/navy/royal/touch of lime green) and this jersey knit is soooo comfy. I got it last summer through the co-op and used all 3 yards of it. Now, I wish I had more!
Gotta love my tan lines. I got sunburned last weekend during my daughter's birthday party, oops! The wrap is a little low in the back, my strapless bra kept peeking out a little. If I make this again, I'll add a shelf bra with cups. (How? I don't know how, but I can figure it out... I think.)
And for you dog lover's out there, here's our German Shepard, Mr R. He loves our kids, let's us know when anyone is in the driveway (or walking down the street) and hates fireworks. This time of year is a little rough on him, but the kids are loving the free shows we can see from the deck!
What's next? Tomorrow we'll have some fun at the County 4-H Fair, where the kids love to see the baby animals in the Miracle of Birth barn and we'll be doing the carnival ride thing. Then it serious school work for me! Yuck, yes yuck, I hear ya! But I've avoided it for far too long, and must tackle it. I'll report back when I've dug my way out. Hope to see you all soon!
