One More Sleep

What I Wore:
Dress: Made By Me (Burda ???)
Shirt: ASOS
Leggings: Suzy Shier
Socks: Ardene
Boots: Golden Ponies

I attempted to find the pattern number for this dress online (because all of my patterns are packed away) but I could not locate it for the life of me. The pattern cover is a pink sweater but is also includes the dress pattern too, in case anyone is interested. It's more of a relaxed look than I usually go for, but it is really comfy and I like the insert panels in the skirt portion, it adds a little something extra. the sweater/dress combo are a new pattern for the fall/winter season so I am not sure why I couldn't locate it on the website, oh well. I will try and find it after we move and edit this post or put the number up somewhere else. I love this fabric I used for this dress so much. It is a nice soft sweater knit that wears nicely and is easy to sew. Everyone at work bought at least one piece, if not more. I actually purchased three pieces myself, one of which I used to make this skirt. I also plan on making the sweater from this same dress pattern out of a charcoal grey piece. I will get to it eventually, the projects are really pilling up around here.

Just a brief post today since we are in the last stretch of packing and getting ready for tomorrow (eep!). Not sure when my next post will be because Sunday is the clothing swap and next week I am working literally every day (Friday at both jobs) so it is going to be busy. Somewhere in there we also have to find time to unpack and maybe decorate for Christmas. I am planing on getting some pictures of the swap and I have a few outfit post pictures taken that I haven't shared yet so I might make some brief posts next week if I have time. Happy Friday to everyone and wish us luck on our big day tomorrow!

P.S. Congratulations to Melissa F. for winning the Datevitation giveaway, you should have been contacted by them on Wednesday. Thanks again to all of those who entered!


  1. I think dresses like this are my favorite because of how darn comfy and cozy they are! The shirt underneath is the perfect cherry on the sundae. Have fun at the swap!

  2. Thanks Jamie! The move went pretty smoothly, and we are mostly unpacked. Just a few odds and ends in our room left to sort out. It's starting to feel like home!

  3. Thanks Marisa :) It is definitely a comfy and cozy dress. I thought the collared shirt just added a certain something, plus I just like to layer collared shirts under everything haha. The swap was a lot of fun and I got quite the haul, I am going to attempt to post about that soon.
