Birthday Dress

Yesterday was my 27th birthday. I went to work, then came home and had delicious desserts that the boyfriend bought for me. He's so sweet. :)

Anyway, I woke up this morning, thinking about what I could possibly wear to my birthday dinner, and decided to finally make a dress I have been meaning to make for quite some time. It is a simple A-line dress, unlined, with circle-ruffle straps. Took about 2.5 hours. 

It finally snowed here in MA, so I wore the dress with brown leggings, brown boots and a bright blue sweater. I love patterns...they make choosing accessories a lot easier! We had a great dinner in Boston's North End. Yum!

I love the way the straps turned out...this will be great for spring!

I also made bread for the first time last weekend with my new KitchenAid mixer...*squeal* It was glorious! I'm afraid there won't be much more industriousness until the semester is over (it starts Monday). :(
Happy Saturday everyone!


  1. This dress looks great! I LOVE the floral print, and I LOVE the straps! I can't believe you made that in 2.5 hours!
    Happy Birthday too!

  2. Thanks Heather! With the bodice block and the serger, dresses come together really fast!


Thank you so much for visiting! I love to hear feedback!
