Today was my first day at college and I really wanted to make a new dress to wear. I had a slight brainwave on how to use this fabric, which I picked up in a tiny vintage shop off Brick Lane. The pattern was entirely drafted by me, and I think it will be really versatile to make other dresses. Of course, I was definitely inspired by Vivat Veritas’ open back dresses, like with my other one. But this time, I wanted to give a different shape to the dress, which is why I made it more a smock shape.
I have to say, this is probably my favourite creation so far!
