I made this dress using a pattern from the Burdamode-website. I was a lot of work to line up the swirling stripes of the embroidery, but I kind of did it. The buttons I used are mother-of-pearl buttons passed down to me through the family. They were once used by my grandfather’s aunt. I really like continuing what appears to have been her habit of re-using fastenings
black and white embroidered cotton (broderie anglaise), mother-of-pearl buttons
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
