I knew that I had to have this dress. I even rant about it here. This is the jcrew Madison dress.
I have taken a wardrobe refashion pledge (must abstain from the purchase of "new" manufactured items of clothing) and I am holding to my vow.
So I combined this pattern with that pattern and... there you have it.
I wanted to pay tribute to one of my favorite bloggers. Her style is always timeless and lovely. I find her so inspiring. I'm calling this dress Effie.
