New York New Dress

I bought this dress for $10 at thrift store and gave it a makeover!  

This is the first dress I've made in New York! I don't have a machine here yet so it was all done by hand. 

Sketches and inspiration pictures I took in the city this summer:

Thank you mom for mailing me my dress form from Michigan and dad for buying my air conditioner so I could sew without dying of heat.  I love you both!  

And of course thank you to my tiny friend Izzy for keeping me company while I worked.

New York fashion week is coming up and I'm really busy at both DVF and Foundfuture getting ready, so excited for it to start!
