“If a man knew anything, he would sit in a corner and be modest; but he is such an ignorant peacock, that he goes bustling up and down, and hits on extraordinary discoveries.”

So most people wouldn't classify a thrifted muumuu with a giant peacock as an extraordinary discovery, but man do I love this dress. This isn't actually the original peacock dress, Mr. Peacock was cut from him faded and fraying original home and put on a Target dress. (Alert: thrift stores are a great place to find things to applique!) Once I wear this dress to death, he will probably get moved again if he can manage it.


  1. Ooooh clever idea. I'll be on the lookout for cute appliques next time! Love the peacock :)

  2. I love this dress. so cute.. you have some really great stuff on your site!!!

  3. ummm, i would SO classify a peacock mu-mu as a great find. BUT then again, i have a thing for mu-mu's. love it. no joke:)

  4. I can not believe that you made this dress with your own hands! It is very beautiful and interesting
