Well, it looks like the Indie Love Collection has come to an end. Today I'm sharing the final outfit, and I've saved one of my very favorites for last. I've been in love with this Matinee Dress (affiliate link) ever since Jenn made her original green versions for the Emerald week of the Sew-vivor Challenge last year. I adored that open back the moment I saw it, and patiently waited until the pattern was released this past spring. Unfortunately we were still wrapped up in the craziness of moving when the pattern came out, so I couldn't make one right away, but I knew it would be the perfect addition to my summer collection once everything got settled.
Ta-Da! Here it finally is, and I still love that back just as much today as the first time I saw it. So precious!
And wonder of wonders, Aurelia was even at her very best for the pictures! I think she's realized we're finally done for the season, because even though it was drizzling out, I somehow managed to get a few genuine smiles. Either that, or she's finally taken pity on me and decided to cooperate from now on...but I won't hold my breath on that one. I'm just happy to have some non-scowling pictures for a change!
Ok, how about just one more? It's just too adorable not to.
