Description

If this dress weren’t so barely there and floaty already, it would be threadbare by the time summer is over…I love wearing it already. I’ve been holding on to this amazing textile for a couple of years now, and I hope I’ve done it justice. Back in the swing of things over at threadsquare

    did you draft your own pattern for this? I absolutely love how the bodice drapes.

      Oops! I forgot to add a credit. It’s Vogue pattern from the 90s (9768).

    This is such a gorgeous print! That fabric is just divine – I’m a sucker for anything thing with birds on it! But this is EXTRA nice. I am sure it is as lovely to wear as it looks! Nice job Honey.

      I never saw your comment… doh! It feels so lovely on the skin, especially in hot weather :) I’m only concerned about sweat ruining the silk.

    Oh, didn’t I comment this dress? I thought I did, it’s really, really pretty and I love the print. It’s very retro in a modern way!
