I made this slightly Greecian red minidress using a super old vintage pattern from the 70s which I found in my mother’s craftroom. The fabrics I used are a viskosa mix + poliester lining. The lining was a real bitch to sew but I’m very happy with the result and especially with the fancy back detail.

Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
