wine-colored dress

September 1, 2016


This has been one of my go-to dresses this summer. I woke up at 5am on a Sunday morning, itching to make something, and this was the result. Of course, it got worn to church gathering later that morning. This pin is what the dressed is modeled after, and if you’ve been following here long enough, you know I’d rather make than buy. I love the deep red of that dress, and when I found this linen fabric at the store, I knew I had to make my own. I made the straps using braided cotton rope that I dyed grey.

When the chilly temps come in, I can wear my cotton crew from Everlane (worn here) underneath to continue giving this dress love. Let’s be real though, summer goes on forever in SoCal, so I can probably keep wearing this exact ensemble until Thanksgiving. If I want more autumn vibes, I’ll switch out my slides for clogs.

I shared my love for these shoes a couple “huzzah” posts ago, and now they are on sale for 30% off! Just in case any of you were interested.

on me: dress: handmade. bag, vintage (reproduced ones here). slides, banana republic.
