A Remake


A few years back while traveling in Italy I saw this dress in a window. It was cheap and I thought it was a perfect summer dress. 
I didn't try it on.
My bad, because it didn't work for me. Guess I was channeling my 20 something self.....
I showed it to Jessica and she loved it, which is funny because it is much more color than she ever wears at once. Some days I cause her to cringe with my colorful clothing. 
Poor baby.
Before the little guy came along she wore it a couple of times but after little guy, some changes needed to be made. It happens when you are blessed with children, things change. 
Before.
Sorry for the mediocre photos, I think we were supposed to be making dinner?? Poor guys.
After.
Mom friendly but gorgeous!
Even better than the original, don't you think?

HAHA after the little guy? This dress was tiny I never wore it without a wrap cardigan.
You forgot to mention that even the original picture is an altered version- it was originally a halter top! You were channeling your inner ... 16?
But yeah! cause I love it!

I love the remake! The original was good, but the new one looks much better. I like the green fabric that you used, it adds pizzas and makes look rich. Great job, you are a wonderful sewer.
