To my favorite bloggers - I am very behind on visiting most of your blogs and I apologize! I hope to come by soon. :) I'm also behind on responding to comments, but I want to thank everyone for your birthday wishes to "Baby" E and your kind words on the recent PFC post!
This DIY is inspired by Kate Spade's Jillian dress, but it went awry in 2 main ways. One, I got distracted while I was cutting my fabric and wound up making the bodice way too short (hence the bow is directly under my bust rather than at my waist). Two, this print is too busy to really see the bow detail from afar. It's not my best work and definitely not very close to the inspiration, but fortunately (whew!), it's still wearable.
My cutting mistake did allow for enough leftover fabric to create a top so stay tuned for Part 2 on Wednesday :)

I've been buying a lot of jewelry on eBay lately. The prices are phenomenal and I love having the option of buying something inexpensively when it's trendy, I can't DIY it, or both.
Inspiration: Kate Spade Jillian Dress
Only 2 more weeks until the movers come! Once we get unpacked and settled, I'd like to give the Jillian dress another shot. This time with the waist at the appropriate height and hopefully, better visibility of the bow and it's side construction.
Do you have any fun projects waiting in your queue?
