DIY Lots of color

Decided to try my hand at color blocking taking cue from an awesomely overpriced Tibi dress.  Paying $700 for a wear only once pink and orange dress would not be the smartest clothing budget decision to make. While sitting in front of the sewing machine, It dawned on me that I kinda enjoy making things.  And true to form going all in, I ordered a serger.  Now I need to learn how to use it before it arrives 🙁

Dress: DIY Vogue pattern V1102
Heels: Alexander Wang
Watch: Tag Heuer
Bracelets: Tennis bracelet/Mango
