I was lucky enough to be chosen to test Rachel’s (from http://houseofpinheiro.blogspot.com/) inagural pattern, the Brasilia Dress (which will soon be released for free download). I love the style lines of this dress – it’s a perfectly classic shape but with modern details. To compliment this idea, I chose a quality, solid-colored wool, matching Bemberg lining and simple braided piping, to make it a timeless dress that I’d hopefully reach for for years to come.
I love this pattern and highly recommend downloading it once available!
