You have no idea how long I’ve been waiting to share these! I made this dress over a month ago, and it’s been in heavy rotation since. I’m delighted with every aspect of how it came out – but, due to the stipulations of my latest project, I couldn’t talk about it until today.

A few weeks ago, I was approached by CutOutAndKeep.net to participate in their blogger interview series. “Send us an outfit featuring a DIY garment,” they said, “and we’ll post your tutorial and a bit about your blog.” Great – I had just about finished this dress, so I stitched the last few seams, threw it on for pictures, and wrote up a tutorial. Then I sat on my haunches and waited for interview to go live…only to be told that it would take three. more. weeks. I understand why and all, but still – I am not known for my patience.

But! Three weeks later, here it is. Not only can I (finally) share this shoot, I can show off my tutorial and blogger interview over at CutOutAndKeep. Check it out here!

Dress: made by me, with vintage fabric from Jubilee Street

Hat: vintage, via Fancy Lucky Vintage

Gloves: vintage, via Mainly Vintage

Shoes: thrifted

This dress is actually the reason I bought this hat. I realized I did not have a red pin-on hat, and that simply would not do. I meant this post to be its debut, but I accidentally blogged it two more times in the intervening weeks. Whoops.
