This is the Diana ross dress from the lovely book ‘famous frocks’. The book has ten iconic dress patterns incuding this one, audrey hepburn,madonna twiggy marilyn monroe and five others. I intend to make them all at some point and this is the first. Check out my missing leg in one of the photos lol. My mum just clicks away like mad with my phone camera and she hopes for the best lol !! When we returned to our apartment in spain she said to check my photo’s to see if i had any nice oneswell i looked and then said mum!! I have a missing limb I was Moving my leg while mum was clicking and she managed to capture only one of my legs!!
The fabric i used was a sumptious animal print knit with a gold foil on it. I lined it in a tangerine jersey as i did’nt want the inside of the fabric on the kimono sleeves showing. X
