PUCKER UP

I believe a woman can never have too many dresses. I was such a skirt girl up until about two years ago when I suddenly became completely obsessed with dresses. They’re so easy to make, so I often stay up late on a Saturday night and whip one up for church the next day, and my pinterest sewing inspiration board is definitely dress-heavy. 
But my biggest challenge in hand-making a lot of my wardrobe is finding really great printed fabrics — there are tons of great solids, and tons of fun prints in basic quilting cotton fabrics, but when it comes to apparel fabric the printed sections are so limited. So when I found this lips print dress on sale at Nordstrom a few weeks ago, I knew I’d never be able to find a fabric like this to be able to make on my own, so I snatched it up. Because who wouldn’t want a gorgeous, pleated dress with kissy lips all over it? Plus, how amazing will this look with a leather jacket and booties in the fall, or worn as a skirt with a cable knit sweater over the top in the winter? Or with tights and knee-high boots? I mean, the possibilities are endless. Basically it’s the perfect dress, and I just wanna kiss it right back.
