This strapless dress, fifties inspiration, is the one I wore at my birthday party. 30 years already!
I chose the theme “New York”, so when suddenly I came across this printed “USA flag” fabric, I didn’t hesitate one second.
I have kept intact the strapless top but I opted for a gathered skirt to keep the retro side.
