Blue Silk

Remember this blue colorblock dress? Yeah, it's been a few months but I finally finished it and it looks nothing like the original idea. My goal was the finish this dress before my Miami trip in February, and that didn't happen so I set it aside for awhile. I made a huge mistake while making it and accidentally cut the skirt making it impossible to put a zipper in and finish it. The material was somewhat expensive and I wasn't sure I wanted to start over. I thought it might be easier to just buy a dress and be done with it. Finally I decided I didn't want to give up on it and continued working on it.

I decided to remake the skirt and use the old skirt to make the ruffled peplum. Instead of color blocking the dress, I found some hot pink shoes to wear with it to a good friend's wedding this past weekend.

I have several pictures of the dress on my dress form, but none of the full dress from the wedding this weekend.


 Here's a few pics from my friend Lauren's wedding in St. Louis. Which was AMAZING and SO much fun, by the way!
