Current Look: DIY Drop Waist Dress

Hi friends! Have you missed me? I promise to provide an explanation for my absence from the blogosphere in my next post. For now, I'm entirely too excited to bring you my latest DIY: the Drop Waist Dress!

It all started after seeing this look from my favorite blogger Blair of Atlantic-Pacific. Then I received an email from Net-a-Porter harkening fit and flare as the most current style in dresses. I was this close to point-click-buying Blair's dress here from Topshop when I thought to myself, "Wait just a cotton-pickin second! I could make this!" And the stylecurrent drop waist dress was born.

Want to know the most exciting part? For the first time ever, I'm making my DIY dress available to any fashion-forward feline who wants it, right here in my Etsy shop.
