From one of my first collections. I wanted to make something that was classy but yet still really young, because I always hate it when youth is wasted by wearing things that make you look like a mature career woman. There’s the rest of your life for that.
So I put together something that has a high hemline with contrasting glossy iridescent chiffon and completely matte black cotton. I guess I’ve always had a love for chiffon so I just had to use it.
Top has 2-fold symmetry (oh science talk…)so the back is the mirror image of the front.
Pattern of the Week
