Description

I was inspired by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, when she comes out for her party wrapped in a fabulous sheet… so I made a dress to look like it.

I made a simple tube dress and took a couple yards of fabric, pleated it into the hip of one side of the dress and draped it over the opposite shoulder.

Material Notes

Thick fabric… like tweed.

    It is lovely! Great work going without a pattern – people are so restricted by them these days

    Very Dramatic! Lovely work on the pleating up the side seam.
