The story about the dress: character with a feel of retro. The main component in the silhouette of dress is collar, which is characteristic for the fashion of 70ies.
But everything is topical today: both the new and the old.
Technically the dress is simple, top is the blouse, where the main focus is on button fastenings and collar. And the skirt part is simply a straight piece. For the waist I sewed in three lanes with rubber thread, folded it over and sewed like a belt, as a result there is no need to run a rubber. I find this alternative to rubber to be very comfortable and visually sappealing
