The Deep V

This deep V is for me to test out this styling of dress for future dresses.  I have always loved a great plunging V neckline and personally hate anything that comes close to my collar bones.  This dress has really been through the ringer.  I swear if I have to take it apart one more…

Maroon Criss Cross

The building of my work wardrobe continues!This newest creation was made with last weeks’ White Blouse (New Look 6213).  This super soft cotton blend was bought with the black fabric for Pearls for Work.I still took in the sides about 4 inches and it is still a flowy blouse with the 4” out.  I had…
