Description

My inspiration for this shirt came from grosgrain’s “The Paper Crane Frock”. I just adored the way the front panel of the dress was folded with buttons down the middle so I attempted to replicate the look in my own way.
I guess it’s no secret that I love green, and wearing emerald green makes me feel sort of royal haha!! xD
I only wish I had some boning to put in the front and side seams, but it turned out alright anyways so whatevs. There’s always next time :)
And I probably could have ironed it better before taking pictures =S

Material Notes

crepe satin (probably my most expensive fabric EVER!!), custom-made fabric buttons, invisible zip
