Description

I had been wanting to make something retro since I saw Prada a/w collection 2011-12. I was holding this project in my mind up till now and finally finished.

I added darts around sleeve hem to make it a little puffy. This is my first try and I think it matches well with the retro dress. The skirt has tucks in front and back. This dress can also be worn as a coat :)

I couldn’t find nice buttons I imagined so I got these simple buttons dyed in the end.

    Absolutely gorgeous! I love it and love that you made it in a heavier material to do double duty. Lovely!

    Very professional work. I like the fact that you drafted your own pattern. That’s impressive. I also like the fact that this project is versatile and you can wear it as a jacket or a dress. Great work!

    Your finishing looks impeccable and the style and single colour are very Prada-esq. It looks lovely on you!

      Single colour, its cream, that’s why it was hard to find matched color buttons. thanks for your comment:)

    Excellent job! I love it – Did you draft your own pattern, or is this based on a pattern?
