This is my version of BERNINA 3 Series.
My inspiration was from 1940s to 1950s.
My favorite designer, Claire McCardell’s gave me so much hints to design the dress and the turban.
I first wanted to cover the shoulder, but to make it more “party look”, I changed it and exposed shoulders. Most of the Claire McCardell’s dress fascinated me were active & simple cotton day dresses. So I kept it simple and added turban to give it a spice of working girl:)
The fabric is very beautiful shiny polyester I bought in Thailand and used cupra rayon for lining.
