mister made me a dress!

 We picked up this made by rae pattern when we were in Seattle visiting my friend Heath. We wandered into Drygoods Design and I about swooned over the gloriousness of it all. I left with two patterns and this was one of them.
I have had the sugarskull fabric for a few years. There wasn't enough to make an entire dress, so I opted for it to be the yoke. The bottom is an olive linen-like fabric we picked up in Reno at Mill End Fabrics. My aunt introduced it to us and we try to hit it up every time we visit her in Reno.
I've already worn it four or five different ways.  I've worn it as a summer tunic, with a lime green and navy striped top, and as a top with jeans, but this is my favorite.
The original pattern does not include pockets but since I do love a pocket, mister gallantly stitcjed me up a pair. Yup, he's a keeper!
