Vogue 8413

A few months ago a coworker and I were looking at dresses on overstock.com and came across this dress:


It was love at first site for me, but I just knew I didn't have any occasion to wear it. I decided to make it anyway. Our holiday party at work is pretty casual and in past years I definitely went casual - and always looked a HAWTTTTT MESS in the photos. Not this year, I decided. This dress was perfect. I already had the pattern Vogue 8413 (so glad I'm a pattern hoarder collector)

I wore a mid-heels and black cardi to "casualise" it. No pics of that. I was minimal on jewelry and makeup-free so I didnt feel too "dressed." I'll get to wear it again for hubby's graduation so I'm glad I made it!

It was fairly easy to make, I'll review it later on to give the dirty deets. For now  Go here for the review and & check the pics below...

Cute dress and love the bright red belt. Thought the hawwt mess comment was funny. When I worked outside the home, not only was I wearing super casual at the Xmas party, but people always seemed to snap my pic when I was loading a huge forkful of food into my mouth! Your co-workers appear to me kinder as you look lovely in all your pictures.

I love this dress on you, it's just absolutely adorable! I don't think you could look a "hawwt mess" if you wanted to!!! Beautiful work on your part!
