A couple of months ago, I came across a pair of gorgeously distressed and embroidered ladies western boots on sale. I'd been looking at boots for a while and still had my birthday money burning a hole in my pocket, so I went ahead and bought them. (I live in Texas ya'll and haven't had any cowboy boots in at least 15 years- when I got rid of my winter white lace up Ropers I wore while in college.)
The sad thing is, I still haven't worn the boots! I have nothing to wear with them and it is too hot for jeans. I've been trolling Pinterest and Google images to see how everyone is wearing this type of boot. Mostly short dresses and skirts in the warm weather and with skinny jeans in the winter.
I love the look of above the knee dresses with boots, so I started my hunt for the perfect dress. I looked everywhere! The problem is, I won't wear a sleeveless dress and I don't like anything fitted/structured on me. Out of the blue one day, this top popped up in my Facebook feed.
I loved it! I wear tops like this ALL THE TIME and I knew I could easily make it into a dress. (read the rest of the post and enter the pattern giveaway after the jump.)
