San Francisco, C...
I was obviously inspired by the 50s, my favorite fashion era. i love full skirts and the understated femine sexy of this era. Adding bows, another of my favorite, just made sense. I wore it today to work and received many compliments, the best that it’s" very me". I chose to use gingham print because it can be dressed up or down which means I can wear as much as possible =)
I used Simplicity Project Runway pattern 2444 and altered the sleeves.
