Happy May! I have something so very special for you, you guys. Check it out… it’s another Auntie + Nephew photo shoot you’re about to see. 🙂
Dress: Handsewn 🙂 | Cardigan: J.Crew | Belt: Shop Ruche | Sandals: Forever 21 | Bag: Marc Jacobs
Yup, you read that right, I MADE this dress! A few weeks ago my friends and I raided the fabric section at Joann’s, picked up a few patterns, and made some shirts, skirts, and dresses! It’s pretty much just two rectangle pieces sewn together with elastic on top, easy peasy. Since it’s not too form fitting, I just threw a belt on over the whole thing and called it a day. I have a feeling I’ll be whipping out a few more throughout the summer. 🙂 And the bag?! Oh the bag… I love the color and style so much. Thanks Jenny for letting me borrow it, aren’t SILs the best!?
Sorry, I don’t know where his outfit was purchased. But doesn’t he work the camera so well? If you compare my first photo and his first photo, you’ll see a posing resemblance. 😉
He makes my heart melt, but you already knew that.
When’s the last time you made something for yourself? What was it?
What a great dress! So beautiful and I love the brown cardigan with it. Your nephew is so cute.
Love the dress, you look beautiful!
Love the dress. It’s great and that color looks fabulous on you. Your nephew is so handsome.
I made myself a new headband last night!
Okay LOVE that dress!
You look so great! Your nephew is a cutie, as always! 😉 Aren’t nephews/nieces the greatest? 🙂
wow!! impressive, sandy! the dress looks great!
I made a skirt for myself recently. I like it because it’s bright and made from old t-shirts. It’s sooooooooooooo comfortable! Love it! Haven’t taken any pictures of it yet. Love your dress and fabric choice!

I’ve had my eye on that fabric for MONTHS–now I want to go buy it and make myself a dress, too! It looks great! I actually sewed myself a little skirt tonight–it was so much fun!

Sandy, I love these outfit posts — you always look gorgeous. And I don’t think I’ve ever made anything for myself, unless you count the more complicated desserts for myself. But when it comes to being crafty, I’m just not.
What an adorable dress! I love that you sewed it because you will be able to whip up a few more these for summer time. And a belt always helps cinch things in.
And as always your nephew is adorable!

Amazing dress and adorable nephew (: I am definitely going to be making some dresses this summer. I can name a few things that I *will* be proud of making myself in the near future, which is a lot of things for my new apartment: shelving units, bike racks, closet organization system, etc. Hopefully I can hold myself to this!
