An everyday denim dress inspired by the Cruise 2012 catalogue from Louis Vuitton (starring Arizona Muse, so that’s where the name of this project derives from). For my version I used burdastyle 05/2001 no. 104 which looked rather nice and simple, but needed several alterations (taking in side and back seams, shortening the hem + I added 3/4-sleeves). The white topstitching along the neckline of the dress is hand-sewn as well as the patch pockets.
