Currently Loving

I'm still on a gingham kick and have fallen in love with this Jcrew green dress. I really want to make something similar but am having trouble finding the pattern. I ordered this striped ASOS maxi dress last week and I really hope it fits! I love the colors! I'm tempted to buy this Kate Spade swimsuit. I think it's last years style, but I love the striped high waist bottoms!

Off the Shoulder Top

I made this top a couple weeks ago and wore it for my birthday. It was fairly simple to make. I used McCalls 7163 pattern for the peasant top. I cut the XS size because I didn't want it to be too blousy. I initially wanted to make this a long tunic, but it just didn't look that great on. I decided to shorten it and added elastic to the bottom. I also didn't follow the directions for the top elastic. The pattern calls for 2 pieces of elastic, instead I used one wider piece. I am pretty happy with how it turned out!  


This is what I wore out for my birthday that evening.
Clutch is from ASOS, Jeans from Gap and Shoes are Steve Madden.
