so windy today...

When the fashion world is all about 80s, studs, strong shoulders and what not, I still like feminine floral prints the best. My style has changed a bit since I started working from home, because I do not have a limitation in what I can wear as opposed to "business casual" environment I used to be in. I could be wearing a pajama all day long for all I care.. but I just don't feel right when ever I do it. I am more attracted to mini dresses, colorful tights and shorts, and my hem line is getting higher and higher...
Here is what I made last night. No pattern is used, but it is pretty simple as you can see below. It is a tent dress, and I want it to be loose and relaxing, something I can belt it up and also wear it loose with leggings as a tunic. So no darts or pleating.

I used a floral print fabric I got from Nippori fabric row a couple of weeks ago. It is relatively thick cotton fabric, and I like it because it does not wrinkle after a wash.
The dress has a small button closure with a loop in the back.
xoxo!

I can't believe you made that! I am so lacking in the DIY department.
