    That tiny little binding around the leg holes is ridiculously perfect! I agree with Oona on the great print placement front and back and amazing photos as always :)

    thecuriouskiwi commented on the project Lonsdale maxi dress

    thecuriouskiwi commented on the forum topic Question about adding seam allowance
