This is the first dress I made. It took several months to finish it.
I used a pattern from Burda Easy fashion spring/summer 2005.
Later on I used the pattern for the vichy-top of my second project ‘back to the fifties’.
The tights and pink cardigan are from H&M.
The black rose corsage is bought in a fourniture shop.
The shoes with the roses are vintage (I think from the seventies): brand: M. Alende – London.
synthetic taft with satin roses: the roses were already stitched on the fabric.
