And furthermore, how can so many days of sunshine feel so oppressive? But I'm just aching for Portland, I see pictures of rain and I want to crawl inside them. Even the dirty creek in Meadow Park makes me wistful. I love you San Luis Obispo, but I'm going to cheat on you with Portland.
I won't be back there until Christmas, which is so soon, but does NOT feel soon enough. It's just over a month and between now and then there are birthday parties and camping trip parties and costume parties and cornhole tournament parties. It's party season. But all I want is rain. The fall leaves are nice though.
Everyone in the blog-world has been making and raving about this dress, I don't have anything different to say. It is truly fantastic. And fast! I made a 12, probably could've gotten away with a 10, as I ended up taking the back in, and could do so more if I wanted to. And the neck is a bit gaping. But, it actually feels a lot like what I wore in high school, with combat boots, and a flannel tied around my waist (yep, for reals). It feels very homey. Like Portland. I'm even wearing my glasses! Which I haven't done since the 90s!

The only other alteration I did was to put the zipper in the side seam because last weekend I crashed my bike in the cross race and I still can't maneuver my right arm to zip up the back. But it works just fine.
I could probably make a million more of this dress. I do love it.
Also, in spite of the fabric being from Portland, I actually bought it at Picking Daisies. It's a great store, check these women out!
