the haunted dress

2 Sep

Here’s a dress that Greg pulled out of his attic for me:

When Samantha and Greg moved into their house, they discovered a few suitcases and boxes full of old dresses in the attic. Greg was convinced that the dresses were haunted, but he still let me come over and take them.

This one is my favorite, but I’m not totally sold on the length. Should I hem it to just above the knee? I would appreciate input on this important matter.

There are way more dresses, most from the 1950s according to fabric store receipts we found in the boxes. I’ll post pictures of them someday when it’s not too hot to wear clothes. Most of them fit me, and they seem to be in great condition now that I’ve washed decades of attic dust out of them.

Thanks Greg and Sam, for the dresses, for the delicious burritos, and for having a super fun belated wedding reception! You guys are awesome.

Picnic!

Tomorrow, I’ll beĀ  selling all kinds of awesome stuff with the amazing Audrey Hotchkiss! If you live around here, you should totally come visit our booth and buy tons of jewelry, clothing, and photography.

I’ve been pretty busy getting ready for this, plus I wrote a review of a Lifetime movie for my friend Rusty’s blog (watching trash TV is essential to my jewelry-making process). Next week, I should have a post about the gorgeous (and possibly HAUNTED) dresses Greg and Sam pulled out of their attic for me!
