True to the “house dress” title I’ve bestowed this piece with, I’ve been wearing it a ton at home (in the more comfortable proper way)

I brought it on a trip to China a few years ago and it was a great travel piece that I got ample use out of, from hiking mountains in insane humidity to having tea with family at home. However, a nagging issue was that the neckline was too low for my preference, which led me to be hyper self-conscious while wearing it. That was, until I came to the simple realization that I could just wear it backwards. And suddenly, I enjoyed the dress a whole lot more. I think it looks a bit more put-together when worn backwards with the high neckline. If I steamed it, put on heels, and threw my hair up, I could even make it fancy, with hardly any effort.

Awesome place to hide and play, to read, to rest or cuddle up with mummy and daddy

I checked my Pinterest boards for inspiration and I saw this beautiful tipi (also spelled teepee) filled with cushions and teddy bears

I recently took part in a pattern test by Itch to Stitch designs, a sewing pattern brand I have been a tester for, for years. It was easy to jump into this test! Involved were many skirt options and knit fabric, a combination that is irresistible as a HUGE skirt wearer.
