Durban, South Af...
I was inspired to make this dress from something I glimpsed in a movie; it took a while to get the pattern right, and then even longer for the happy co-incidence of fabric to occur. I’m completely in love with this dress, and it’s simple lines are very slimming; the lighter colour used on the inside panel and the white topstitching seem to play a happy trick with the eye.
This dress is made from polycotton, and hence is very cheap; it could easily be made with any fabric, and when I can afford a slub silk, I will be making one for myself in that. I’ve been wearing this with a pair of jeans and red slipslops, as it’s been rather too chilly to wear on its own, but I look forward to the summer months with this one.
This dress is for sale, find me on facebook (page is under construction atm, apologies).
