Through no fault of the pattern, this is my least favorite of my ESP dresses. And it has to do with an unfortunate photo I took of the finished dress at sew camp - sometimes you just can't un-see something. If you follow me on Instagram, it's likely you know what I'm talking about. I'm not putting that photo on the internet again.
This was also my (very) late entry for the crazy dog lady sewing challenge. I love that this dress is subtly dog themed and you have to really be paying attention to get it.
I've worn this dress twice to work now, and it's comfortable and easy to wear. I love the fullness of the skirt and each time, I've paired it with my red cowboy boots, red belt and cardi and my Dudley tribute necklace.
Close up of the fabric - those are paw prints surrounded by bones and my Dudley tribute necklace. This necklace was a gift from a friend when we lost Dudley, I had another friend, put it on a different chain, and you can't see them, but there are 3 rough cut rubies on the side of the chain to symbolize the 3 remaining dogs. While we only have 2 dogs left, I feel all 4 of them when I wear this necklace.
Do you have a piece of jewelry that reminds you of a person, beloved pet or moment in time?
