I've been on the lookout for more green dresses lately, and I recently nabbed this comfy, rayon, prettiest-green 40's number for a song. The only problem was that the neckline was a bit of a plain-jane. I remedied this when I hemmed it, by using the extra fabric to make a big, floppy bow I could pin to the top of the bodice!
It's also a smidgen too big, 'cause it's always easy to take things in, right? The enormous pile in my altering/mending basket says otherwise, but I keep it up! And I was too excited about the polka dots and green-on-green action to take it in before wearing it the day we snapped these.

Oxfords - Biviel
Fox tote - Libris Lunaria
Here I am doing...I don't know what.
Modeling how one uses a tote? Checking on the family of mice that I'm carrying around?
I had been wishing a Mr. Fox tote would get made, and now he's carrying around all my necessities for me. It's a lovely size - not-too-big and not-too-small.
And I'm extremely impressed by all the delicate lines the printer was able to retain from the original engraving. All those tiny bits of fur!
It's really sweet to be able to carry such a nice old drawing around with you.
