As a former Miss Kansas, my cousin Becki plays a big part in the celebrations of pageant week in Kansas every June. Undoubtedly, one of her best duties is riding in the parade (how fun would that be?!). She and I combined our mutual powers this year to design (her) and sew (me) a one-of-a-kind dress for her to wear in the parade!
Since she spends most of the parade waving from the car, she thought it might be fun to have a one-shoulder dress with a fun sleeve. We scoured the internet together to pick out a fabric, and came up with this amazing aqua jersey from Gorgeous Fabrics (seriously, it's a dream - and there's 7 yards left!). I loved the end result and the marriage of the design and the print.
P.S. Becki is a talented professional trumpet player - check out her website, if you'd like!
