Description

Inspired by Marnie Madden from The Hour, I made a wiggle dress modified from Bluegingerdoll’s Billie Jean pattern. I modified the shoulders (to go over the shoulders) and I added a larger vent. It’s a cotton fabric with a lovely lace print and it’s incredibly comfortable!

    This fits you very well and looks lovely on you. I love the fashion in The Hour and your dress is a lovely take on that period.
