The Picnic Dress: Pinterest Challenge #5

Hello everyone!

Pinterest Challenge #5

The  Picnic Dress

Last week Wildeman got his Easter oufit and yesterday mommy got hers! I mentioned in my last post that we were celebrating easter with a picnic (weather permitting) so, I needed a picnic dress. This also fell beautifully in line with my (nearly done) Pinterest Challenge!

This dess was made from a large men's button down. I had originally meant to make something completely different but the shirt had this dress inside it and there was no way it was letting me tell it what to do! It's definitely a step outside my usual style (neon green and silver zebra striped pants anyone?) but I loved it more and more throughout the day.


My pinspiration:


  1. cute! I like the babydoll waistline belt accent <3

  2. Thanks ladies :-) I thought the belt made it a little more retro, it's actually the collar stand from the original shirt.

  3. This dress is gorgeous! I love the fit and the skirt part! That lace detail under the arms is fanastic!
    Thanks for linking up!


I love comments!
