Dress Possibilities


I found this beautiful embroidered Free People dress and thought it might possibly be “the one” for my upcoming art opening…


But there were some issues for me.
I had my seamstress take 4 inches off each side of the skirt, as FP is famous for having tons of fabric where less might be more…plus it’s sleeveless…off white…and falls right at the knee.


But, as I added leggings and different jackets, I found myself thinking that, with a little ingenuity, there definitely is potential here…


…as if the gorgeous embroidery wasn’t enough in the first place!

Sold out on the Free People website, this FP Holiday Fiesta Dress is  available at Hop Sing Trading Company
here in Prescott, AZ.
