    Well there you go – point proved – I have no idea whatsoever! Now that you have told me though – I can see it. Still, call me crazy (and people generally do) I think it does have slightly Edwardian feel about it (maybe not so much in the length of the skirt though) – maybe it was little “tip of the hat” to Audrey’s Eliza Doolittle!

    Still – the main thing is – it is just lovely and I hope you can do more work for her too for my viewing pleasure!

      Fingers are crossed! She’s taking a year out of college to recover from some issues with health, but the ideas are still flowing and we hope to get her up and running again soon. She’s so inspiring to work with. :)

    This has such a lovely vintage feel to it Darl – 1910s? 1920s (?) your fashion dating skills are far superior to mine! That embroidered contrast fabric is truly lovely. As always, your attention to detail and skill are par excellence.

      Thank you. It was designed by Marla for Audrey Hepburn, so more late 50’s than anything else. Some of the smaller ideas and the how-we-do-it stuff are mine, but the concept and the design and cut are all Marla’s. I hope to do more work for her in the future.
