Thsee photos are from a couple weeks ago because my hair is still really long here (I chopped about 6 inches off, and I miss this length, but I don’t miss all the fried ends). This dress is one of my most favorite vintage finds of late. The dress is quite large, but that makes it even more perfect. I don’t let size stop be because if it’s too big, I can always sew it to make it fit. In this case, I love the loose, flowy vibe of it, and of course, I love the golden hue. No sewing necessary on this one. It’s not a color I wear often, but I’m trying to branch out past my creams, blues, and browns. This dress will take me into fall nicely and I can’t wait to pair it with some ankle boots.
I still have my love for sewing rope baskets (see past ones I made here and here) and this particular one is inspired by the Birkin basket I love so much. It has a similar shape and I’m debating making a lid for it too. I love making these so much that a few of these might make its way to WOVENFOLK from time to time.
on me: dress, vintage (similar here and here). shoes, loq. earrings, annie costello brown. basket, made by me.

Oh my!! I have the same thing in a lovely dark mauve!! I’ve been wearing the sleeves rolled and opened at the bottom! I love it, and you look great.
That color sounds lovely! If you ever decide to sell or part with the dress, do let me know!
If you ever decide to sell this dress, please let me know. It’s perfect!
