The October Dress Project is halfway over!

This dress has held up the best of all the dresses I have worn over the years. There is no piling or visible signs of wear on the fabric. The interior lining has required some repair and a couple of seams have come undone, but I have been wearing it for 20 days in a row. Nothing a little needle and thread can't fix!

One of the problems I have discovered is if I tuck the dress into a pair of pants, I can't wear it as a dress the next day unless I iron or wash it. Because the fabric is light and breathable, it creases easily. I'll take that every day over a thick, hot fabric though!

I've taken the time to link all of the clothing, jewelry and shoes I wear with every outfit so you can get an idea of where my wardrobe comes from. Mostly, it is thrifted with several staple fair trade items and a couple locally bought things. Please take time to click through!
