I bought this Esprit dress while I was in NY. The shape reminds me of the built by wendy pattern (which I have but have yet to sew anything from). I was so excited to find the Esprit store when I was there, and E hadn't arrived yet, so I could spend as much time as I wanted. I loved Esprit in high school and college. My roommates and I would drive to Orlando for the day, mainly to hit the Esprit outlet. But then the outlet, the website, and the brand disappeared. When I searched for the Esprit link, I found their website, and they've got a great shipping/return policy!
I love this dress, but I was thinking of cutting the sleeves to make normal short sleeves. It's one way to get some of this fabric to use in sewing projects:)
Over the weekend, I helped a friend photograph a wedding. Since she's a pro, she has all this gear that makes it possible to do some really cool things. With a giant lens, my little camera was able to take some pretty amazing shots. It was hard work, but I learned so much. I'm taking photos on manual mode now, and it actually makes sense!
