Summer is here for our family. The kids had their last day of school Friday and now we need to figure out how not to drive each other crazy!
For day two of Me Made June I’m wearing a maxi dress I made from some Anna Sui fabric. I loved the border print on it and used it as the bodice inset as well. I started out with a halter pattern maxidress but ended up starting over with my own pattern because I think halters are uncomfortable. I also can never seem to get around to finding a halter bra although I did find a good tutorial for making your own which I’ll have to dig up to share.
I added this chiffon floral trim to the neck. I didn’t make it but bought it at a trim shop in the downtown LA garment district. I think it was just the touch the dress needed.
Here is a rare photo with my newly minted high school senior son in it. The girls were all doing their nails. Nail polish is a sign of summer for them since they aren’t allowed to wear it at school. That’s a little TOO strict if you ask me. Can you guess how much the baby loves her big brother?
We put them to work young around here. Just don’t call CPS on me for letting her use those big scissors. It was a good salad. Thanks to my hubby for growing it.
