Under the Cherry blossom tree B5211!


Beautiful!




    Happy Resurrection Sunday! It's a beautiful day here in Japan, the Cherry Blossom's have bloomed and they are gorgeous... Since you only have about a week to see the beauty of these Blossom's before they dry up. I thought it would be perfect to get a couple of pictures with my family in my new dress under these beauties..
Under the Cherry Blossom Trees!



Okay, getting to the review of this dress B5211 , which was really simple, did I mention how simple? Yep, purely an enjoyable process.. I mentioned in a prior post that I was jumping on board with the floral trend. I've had this dress complete for a little over two weeks, however, with the weather not wanting to play nice in terms of warmth, I couldn't get photos taken.. Today was a lot warmer here and with the Blossom's having had blossomed I had to take full advantage of this opportunity.

Paired with my Ivanka Trump wedges..
 Description:A,B,C have back neck opening with button and thread loop closure, extended shoulder and top stitching detail. A:front upper and lower sections. B:self -belt. C: gathered sleeve with elastic casing, length 2 above mid-knee. I made view B minus the self-belt and used my own belt..


I used a Charmeuse Poly print purchased last year from Fabric Mart fabrics. I made a size 16, in which I'm happy that I did because I'm losing the weight that I put on last year, and did not want to have to make as many alterations or hopefully none in the future.. I could have added about another 2" to do a proper hem and to do normal leisurely activities, such as sitting LOL...No, seriously, is not that bad but a tad bit longer, and  it would be close to as perfect as this lady can get.... I also left off the button in the back and used my own belt in place of the fabric tie belt...I wanted to break up the print or maybe I was  a little lazy bwahaaaaa! Overall, this was a great pattern, easy, easy, easy! I need projects like that sometimes to keep me motivated you know :) I hope you all are having a fantastic weekend!


Mommy and her boys!
