It’s been so long since I’ve had the time to sew up a new dress! I’m so, so happy to say however that I was able to steal away a few hours the other evening to put in The Craft (1996) and finally put this great teddy bear tapestry fabric to use! I was torn between making a two piece cropped tee and aline skirt and a pinafore but ultimately, as you can see, the pinafore won. Fall and winter are obviously the greatest seasons for layers and (in my opinion) a pinafore just begs to be layered with a good button up.
The amount of fabric I used probably cost me about $6 and it took under 2 hours to make! As you can see I haven’t hemmed it quite yet but I just got too excited to be bothered with it… I had to throw it on right away and snap some iPhone photos. Just look at it! The teddys! In clothes! and hats!

Just spent the day outdoors with Britt trying to tucker out the pup and wound up tuckering myself out too! I think I’ll be settling in now for the evening and do a bit of organizing in my office.
The days are getting shorter, crisper, cozier…. I want to soak up every moment of it and meet each new breath of fresh autumn air with a sip of hot coffee or a warm mug of apple cider. I just want to live within that sweet smell of cinnamon and nutmeg that continuously grows and grows seeping out from the oven. Love love love the season we find ourselves in!
Autumn is just so COZY. For that reason I’ve found myself reaching for more relaxed silhouettes, casual tops and loose layers the past few days. Today I resurfaced this plaid shift dress I got last year and layered it with this oversized lightweight utility jacket. Neither of these things do much for my figure but today I DIDNT CARE! It was loose and comfortable and it’s just how I felt best today, rompin’ around with the dog at the park.
Wore these with basic black tights and my two favorites, a red thrifted bowler and vintage lace up boots.
