Description

light summer dress in striped cotton. My own pattern, inspired by 1950’s sundresses.
I rotated the front darts to center front to let the stripes run parallel to the neckline.

    The dress is wonderful and suits you with its pattern and style. Good balance of simple pattern, pastel colours and playing with stripes:)
