WIMTWW: New Favorite Color Combo

A few months ago I started seeing things in yellow and gray and fell in love with the combo.  One night after looking online at a few of my favorite clothing sites I realized I had a dark gray t-shirt in my stash and lots of pretty yellow fabric.  A few hours later I had a new comfy spring/summer dress:
Confession:  I had a great dress in a few hours but it was waaaaaaayyyyy too short and I decided it needed a contrasting band.  Since I didn't have any gray fabric I picked up the black and white with yellow flower print the next day and added it.  I'm so glad I did, it so made the dress.  I'm still trying to use up my stash and only buy what is necessary so I still consider this a success for stashbusting!

Here are a few of the dresses that inspired me, I like them all but mine the best!
Sunny Soiree Dress 'Pastelling' Secrets Dress Daffodil Pathway Dress Double Date Dress
And there were actually a few others that really inspired me but of course I can't find them when I went to look but I saw a ton more I love that gave me way too many ideas!  Aaaaahhhhhh, what's a girl to do?!?!?

Peace be with you,

I love how you've taken inspiration from some of the latest retail fashions (do I recognize a few Anthropologie finds in there...?), but personalized it with your own touch. For me it always seems the most satisfying to see an idea I like but then to make it happen with my own hands. Great job! And love the dress!

Warmly,
