Handmade Butterick 6582 in Fantastic Psychedelic Vintage Voile

For the past 3 years now, I have always been on the ball when it came to preparing for The Tin Thimble's Handmade Summer Wardrobe Fashion Show and coordinating Fashion Week. This year, I am so elated to say, is our fourth annual event and I am as excited as ever to begin preparing. It is with a sheepish smile that I admit, however, that I am not so prepared this year. The show is a mere 4 months away and I am just now completing my first piece. I cringe. Anyway, check back in for more pieces in the following weeks and months, this first piece has me thoroughly inspired and excited to create more!

The pattern is Butterick 6582. It is made with a vintage cotton/poly floral voile is some of my favorite, neon colors. It is fully lined with 100% pima cotton, which gives the skirt a healthy amount of body and is perfect to swish around in.Zip back with two buttons at the top. Found a belt at Target that matched perfectly. 

Green velvet bows on the shoulders make the dress extra girly and fun.

Fluorescent orange pumps from DSW by Jessica Simpson. They're my multi-purpose graduation shoes and I plan on wearing them as often as I possibly can. 
I hope to wear this outfit to my best friends' graduation celebration in Humboldt County in May. I cannot wait to celebrate such a great day with them in such a fun dress!
