While I was taking photos, a curious fawn peeked through the brush to see what I was up to. It startled me so much that this was the best photo I could manage before it ran away into the undergrowth. It's a shame I didn't move quicker, because this little deer was only about seven feet away!
I'm kind of in love with the collar and shape of this little dress from Ruche, and (I say this about most of my dresses, but...) I can't wait to add layers in the fall. I'm wearing black tights here because we had a few strange, cool days. But now we're back to the normal August heat and humidity.
This casual little blue dress originally had an open back, but I decided it didn't quite suit me, so I carefully removed the zipper and sewed up the back, leaving a few inches below the button for a keyhole opening. The fabric is a little stretchy, so the whole thing slides over my head (sans zipper and open back) quite easily. Since almost all of my clothes come from online shops, I've learned to make many small adjustments here and there with the sewing machine.
Do you ever make DIY adjustments to your clothes?
