First off, it's Wednesday, and I wore this outfit to work. So this is classified as a Wednesday's Work Style post. BUT! The even better part about this post is that I made this dress. Yes. Don't look too closely, you can see all the little imperfections, but for my first article of clothing, I think I did a pretty good job. You know how I know I did a good job? I even got a few compliments on the dress, before anyone knew it was my creation :)
Of course, I did follow another lovely blogger's DIY, which ended up being SUPER simple. So I can't take all the credit. But my dress does look a little different because: a) my material was a bit stretchier than hers, so my dress ended up falling a little differently; b) I decided not to add a belt made of the same material; and c) I cuffed the sleeves to give it a relaxed look (and fix the tiny imperfections...).

Head on over to Freckles in April and check out her Kimono dress DIY. I'm sure you'll fall in love with it just like I did. If you do decide to tackle this dress, I would love to see your creation!
