The Sally Dress by Very Shannon || Sewn by Caila Made

one of my favorite things about the sally dress is the ability to add your own flair - trims, pleats, piping, etc. and today's guests show that statement off so well! 

our first guest today is caila of the blog cailamade. now seriously, i adore grey. i usually have to stop myself from making everything in grey but then the other side of me (i'm a gemini) screams add a print, some color - anything! lol! so when i saw caila's version of the sally it made my heart swell! grey! prints! girly trim! polkadots! seriously awesome. and don't even get me started on those hot pink boots! i.die. just go over to cailamade. she's a sweetheart with mad skills. you'll love it over there. promise. plus you can enter to win a copy of the sally dress pattern!
