For Chelsea, Forever Ago

Chelsea is a talented floral designer, stylist and all-around tastemaker whose fresh and inspiring blog, frolic!, is a daily read for me. She and I collaborated on a photo shoot recently, and I can't gush enough about the styling job she did. I marveled at her ability to take my inarticulate mumblings about what I was going for, and turn them into such a pretty story. The least I could do to thank her is make her this dress:


It's a riff on something she mentioned liking, made up in my current fabric favorite--grey striped linen. I think she needs to wear this dress to the farmer's market. Wicker basket not included. But then, being Chelsea, I'm pretty sure she has the perfect one already.

So pretty! Chelsea is a lucky lucky lady.

P.S. I love the Bon Iver reference. :)

Love this simplicity of this.I think it would look awesome on this 51 year old marmi. Did you create the pattern or is it something I can find?
