School started and I needed someting new to wear. I started to study sewing (finally!) this autumn and I should graduate in two years. Hopefully I will learn how to sew trousers and finally manage to make a pair!
Here’s the dress I made for the first day.

Material Notes

light pink cotton, white cotton, lace, a button




Garment Type

    Absolutely stunning — and such a pretty dusky pink that is so well complimented by the lacey collar!

    Great silhouette and I love the collar. The whole look is perfect with your bobbed hair.

    I think that the dress is simply demure and adorable. I would never be brave enough to wear my own fashions on the first day back to school. But more than anything, I love your photography! It’s breathtaking.

    What, you are studying sewing? I think all your designs and projects are great. How fun to start school to learn something you have a passion for. Good luck.

      The dress on the wall is not self-made. It’s from Spitalfields market, London. (:

    Beautiful finishing at the collar. So dainty. I have classes starting soon as well. I wish I could say that they were for sewing too.
