Self-Stitched-September: 9/5/10

At the Alameda Antique Fair on Sunday. I'm not crazy about this dress  – I just wanted something comfortable to wear without bare shoulders (I always get a sunburn there).

  1. Using the complementary fabric on the shoulders instead of one that matches the rest gives a faux shrug look, kinda like the fauxleros so popular in retro patterns. ^_^ Pretty cute. Bright red’s not my personal fave, but it really works with that main print.

  2. I really like that dress on you. I love the red on the shoulders and the red belt. Lovely! Your hat and gloves are quite fabulous, too.
