Caterpillar Gave Me Mushrooms and This Doesn't Look Like Kansas

You know, I've totally had this photo shoot idea stuck in my head for months now. Desperately needed time/place/help to actually get it done.  First off, I think this dress was initially inspired by Ralph Lauren's Spring 2011 collection. Then it turns out gingham is the surprising IT trend of the season. So for once I'm a bit ahead of the curve. Huh, who knew?  I think pink wigs should be all the rage, too.  A girl can dream, right?  I think this photo shoot officially puts me in the "Mom, you're weird" category.

I gotta say, I love this dress to pieces. Even more than my black floral and lace version.  I like it with the pink bow, but I also made a red belt and I have some lovely red shoes that also work with it very well.

Hmmm, I wonder where I am?

For the record, my coworkers all think I'm batty too. So, whatever.


Such lovely flowers!

TWIRL~



Ok, time for me to go to bed. I think I'm officially done with this dress pattern and now that my cover stitch machine is working I'm gonna go nuts for knits. Later ya'll!

  1. Ok, I don't know which I love more, the dress or the wig. That is an AWESOME photo shoot.

    My kids figured out how weird I am long ago. Tyo seems to take it in stride, Syo not quite so much. Embarrassing her when she's a teen is going to be *so much fun*.

    Dammit, now I want a pink anime wig. It would totally go with the Star Wars dress...

    1. Fortunately my kids go right along with my weirdness cause, I think, most of our friends are just as weirdly awesome.

      Also, you can get this and other wigs here: http://arda-wigs.com/. They are super reasonably priced for what you get.
