Material Notes

Dress: a bit elastic, black fabric and buttons
Headpiece: white cotton, pearls, lace, satin ribbon and a tiny cameo.





I was inspired by a dress I saw in a blog called Sally Jane Vintage (

    The bow on the back is such a nice touch to liven the simple dress. You look so good in it, and awesome that it was finished in time to go out!

    Aw….love it! The back is great! I love that you made this in time to wear it out. Nothing to wear?…I’ll just whip something up! Brilliant.
