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.
Plan a weekend getaway in these sweater dresses and furry accessories.
