Sunshine Summer Dress

I absolutely loved designing and making the pattern for this dress! I was inspired by the warmth of the summer sun, and memories of days at the beach. I knew I wanted something backless that I could throw on over a bikini while in Florida this spring, and all summer long. The drape of this jersey is just amazing, and the hand is soooo SOFT! I adore it! it's like buttah!!...buttah in the form of a ray of sunshine enveloping my bod! LOL! Can you tell I am having fun with this!?

This dress will most likely be part of my first collection...we will see!! I really like it, and it is very comfy!

I am in love with this dress!! It makes me smile!

I love open backs with special details...it is kinda my thing!







To top off my outfit I just had to wear my favorite sunglasses. I love them!!! Nothing like looking at the world through heart shaped glasses! ;-)


So there it is! My Sunshine Summer dress. When you own a piece of clothing that you feel fantastic in, and it makes you smile, the whole world is just a happy place!
I guess if I had to sum it up I could say....
VERY TRUE!!!
Summer is not necessarily a time or a place...it is something we carry with us always in our hearts! Forever be...young wild and free!! :-) (even when you are 95!! age is just a number! remember that!)

May sweet summer always be with you!
Until next post,
Amy

  1. Beautiful yellow dress. I bet it will be nice to wear when it warms up. I loved the little postcard message at the end of your blog. I hope there is some summer in me. Our weather has been horrible and we are experiencing the worst pollution in the nation. Yuck. Invincible summer, I just gotta' hope!

    1. I LOVE the quote at the end of that post. It really does sum up my life and who I am well. No matter what life throws my way, I refuse to let hope die! Everything always works out well in the end. :-)
