Grey Wall, part 2

OK, the truth is that yesterday I put on three different outfits for my photoshoot, because I had three FOs I hadn't blogged yet!  Sooooooooooo lazy!

Here's the Traveler Shirtdress, at long last.  The day after I finished it, the weather here returned to what is normal for this time of year:  i.e. too cold to wear this dress outside yet!  I'm kind of bummed, because this dress is Cake*.  Like I said before, I'll definitely be making more of these.  But not striped!

*Isn't Tasia the cutest?

Four pockets!!

Outfit details:
Boden sunglasses, circa 2009
infinity scarf
 
Traveler Dress, View A
Frye Blair Peep in Coral 

What fabric should I use
for the next one?

Back view is pretty good!
And by that I mean slimming!

Sans scarf, so you can see
the neckline.

Are any of you planning on making this dress?  I really recommend it.  My notes about my experience with it are here.

One more Grey Wall to go!  And it's a good 'un . . . it has vintage jewelry!

  1. I love it paired with the red sandals. I can see you venturing on a picnic with this outfit.

    I *need* to make this dress.

  3. What a lovely "cake" piece. And yes, Tasia is adorable, haha. I love her blog.
    This looks super nice :) And it must be satisfying to make something so practical yet pretty!

    1. I think this would be cute on you too. I'm thinking of doing the next one in army green, and making some shoulder tabs and sleeve rolling-up tabs. Safari look, which I could totally see on you too!

  5. Just knew it! You'll be wearing this often in the month to come. So many ways to accessorize.
    Congrats !

    1. Thanks, Gerry! It's supposed to warm up enough next week that I can wear it - fingers crossed!

  6. My dear, you are a lot of things, but lazy is *not* one of them! All of the grey wall FOs are great, but this is my favorite in this lot.
