Hello from the 90's

A few weeks ago I got a bunch of about a 100 “Burda” and “New Mode” mags from the 80’s to 2000’s (how do we call this era???). I was almost overwhelmed with the amount of patterns, though after looking closely, there were very few things I liked from the 90’s ones. among those were the wrap dresses which are very popular even now. I think they are very feminine, for sure next to the shoulder pads and manish wide cuts that were popular back then.
So… made this cute dress in an afternoon and am very pleased with it :-)

    You look so stylish! I love the skinny belt, and the dress, of course :)

    You look amazing in those pics, this feminine look suits you very well. ( and how do we call the decades after 2000 ? and how come no one has come out with something satisfactory in more than 10 years ? ! )
