Los Angeles, Cal...
Over the summer I made this 1920s-inspired dress in the spur of the moment. I sort of rushed things (didn’t use a pattern except for a really basic one to help create the bodice) but overall I’m happy with how it turned out. It weighs next to nothing and is so comfortable…I could wear silk georgette all of the time! Too bad it’s such a pain to work with (at least for me!).
