Today Tyson and I are working on some projects at home (him painting and I pattern drafting). We popped out for a quick lunch so I threw on some black jeans and a jersey dress then put on the U.P dress with the buttons undone except for one at the wait. I then gathered up the skirt portion and wrapped it around my waist as tightly and flat as possible and tied it at the back. This silk fabric is quite thin, similar to parachute fabric, so it really does flatten out quite nicely, it’s amazing how flat it can become! Since the back is cut so low I usually find it necessary to close an upper button while wearing it this way so it doesn’t fall off my shoulders, but today I used a wooden cameo brooch to hold it in place instead. I then threw on one of my favorite vintage blazer in an amazing floral, grey leather oxfords I picked up in NY last spring and my cozy knit hat…so handy while growing out bangs!
Thanks to everyone who helped us reach $1500! It’s really an accomplishment, but those amazing children need $8500 for their school to be built. We have a ways to go and not much time, so spread the word!
