Description

Very easy pattern, first I had it a bit longer (knee length) but my husband insisted on a shrted, more youthful look so I re-made it for him )))). eventually I added a pleated hem, so now it is fab!

    Your version is much cuter than the original blah yellow thing.

    very chic on you – I like the houndstooth fabric , what did you use for the straps?

      The straps and the detail in the front is a wet look leather trimming with satin pleats running on each side

    I love the fabric! It is so “Mondo” from project runway! It fits great and makes you look very sexy. I bet your man is pretty happy!

    Very 60’s with the houndstooth pattern, but very gorgeous! I think it works better a bit shorter
