Description

This is my first entry for the Bernina 3 Series competition. It is a fitted leopard print shift in a brushed cotton. It is self faced with detatchable vintage fur collar. I also made the hat out of a black straw base with a large silk rose and red netting. Perfect for flirting with married men.

Material Notes

Dress is thick brushed cotton with detachable fur collar.

      Thanks! I started off by being inspired by the 1950’s idea of ‘good girl, gone bad’ but on a whole the look evolved to something more groomed. Bad girls don’t wear hats.
