layers and more layers

the oversized layers return! this time they are varying shades and textures of cream. i have to say, i am loving this overabundance of fabric. it's so much more interesting to wear, you know? i am finding that i can be much more creative with the layering since it's so oversized and it's visually much more appealing (at least to me it is).

the cardigan is a recurring piece that many of you have seen before, but the dress is actually one that i made a few years ago. one day i just decided i wanted to make an oversized, comfortable summer dress and this is what happened. actually took awhile, it is handsewn because i didn't have access to a sewing machine at the time. haha, it's crazy i know. i just sort of made up the pattern using an existing, basic dress that i had. there was really no science to it, it was a complete experiment but i am happy with how it turned out.
