If you follow Karly from Paisley Roots, you know her designs are unique and fresh. The All Spice is right on par with everything Karly does: sweet and sassy, versatile and funky, and just really great.
The pattern features a squared neckline, with a fully lined bodice, sweet little pin pleats down the front, and the option of a button-down front or a zip. A zipper front! How cool is that?!
I had to go with the zipper front, since it really sets this pattern apart from the crowd. You can also choose various sleeve options. We went with long-sleeved for the winter.
I used a linen blend with a funky modern print I picked up from (I think) Fabric.com a few years ago. I had a specific something in mind for myself when I bought it, but I have forgotten what now, and so it seemed time to use it for something else. The All Spice dress, with its hip and modern elements seemed the perfect pairing. I used a turquoise zipper down the front to really make things pop.
And it’s just super cute.
I really had ironed and pressed it well before the photoshoot. But then we drove to this awesome building for the pictures, and by the time we got there, the linen was all wrinkly.
Also, my daughter is ham. We first took pictures at this funky wall in the building. As soon as I pulled out the camera, Ivy started striking poses. One after the other. Then she turned around, wagged her bum at me and yelled, “Take a picture of my bum!”, as a crowd started to gather around to watch her and her antics. It was awesome. She is awesome.
And her new All Spice dress fits her and her awesomeness pretty well, I think!
