Description

I drafted this dress myself based on my reference photos of Alfred Shaheen’s work. I used a Hawaiian-looking linen.

    Love the dress and the way you’ve co-ordinated the colours in the fabric with your tatts.

    Lovely fabric, what great colours! The shape is really nice and unusual too, I can’t believe you drafted this yourself!
