Description

I was inspired by the details from the clothes from my grandmothers wardrobe (made by my great grandmother in the 30´s) when making this dress. It´s actual my bachelor-thesis, and I´ve made the pattern myself.

Material Notes

Viscose and cottonmix with a lining in polyester.

    This is so lovely, I love the piecing of the bodice and the back and the subdued color. All the details are lovely.

    Thank you so much for your kind words! :) It´s not perfect, if I should make it over again I have to do some adjustments.
