Sugar Plum Part 2

I promised pictures of my Sugar Plum dress from Lolita Patterns at least a week ago. Hopefully better late than never ;) Not my usual hairdo today. I pulled it back because I allowed it to dry normally and it is curly and wild. 
I should have taken more pictures. My husband was in a hurry, oh well. At least you see the dress on me. It really is a very attractive dress. I want to get a belt made to wear with it as I think it will be a nice touch.
A few of you commented on the sleeve and thought that it might not work for you. It does have the gathering detail, but it can be left off if you like.
And here are my shoes. I have had these shoes for years and years and years. I've always loved them, but for what ever reason, I just haven't worn them very often. Get ready shoes, you're going to do some walkin'!! They are pretty aren't they?!!
Since you've made it this far in the blog, I have a fun little surprise for you.

    1. If I see a pair of shoes that I really like, I'll buy them whether I have something to wear them with or not. It seems the perfect outfit always crops up :)

    1. Thank you! I think I would also like to make a jacket so I can stretch the dress into fall.

    1. The pattern could be quite versatile. I was just thinking that just about any skirt could be paired with the top.

  11. The dress does suit you very nicely - and the shoes are just gorgeous. Your hair looks nice done up - sometimes a very quick solution on those rushed days.

  12. Wow those shoes are incredible...and go perfectly with your Sugar Plum! You are absolutely right about the sleeve...some testers did not do the gathering at the edge and it turns out just as beautiful.
