Another Pretty Pirate Designs original!

This is a dress I made last summer, I don't wear it often enough.  In fact lately I have decided I need to start wearing the things I have made with my own two hands.  This fabric is so beautiful, I thrifted it in Seattle before I moved to SF.  I had held onto it for a long time and was always too scared to cut it up because I didn't want to damage it.  I decided to use the embroidery on both the top and bottom, I thought It was the best way to get the most out of the gorgeous intricacy of the fabric.   It was the type of fabric with the design all concentrated on one side so I flipped it over for the top.  I thought that was pretty smart, ha!   I am standing in front of the salon which has scaffolding up right now as they are fixing the building up.  
Dress-Pretty Pirate Designs (I made it)
Necklace-Thrifted at same place as fabric for the dress
Shoes-Burlington Coat factory
Bracelets-Thrifted all over

Fancy work outfit
