    Totally dramatic and stunning detailing. You have vision and you are a designer. I do have one suggestion. Use a contrast fabric for your mannequin so we can see more of front detailing. Keep on sewing and creating.

    So retro! I just love the 1950s styling – very vampish (in the best possible way).

    Thanks! I did design and draft it myself. I won’t lie, the collar was pretty tricky to manage, lol

    Thanks! I did actually design and draft it myself – the collar was, in fact, pretty tricky I won’t lie, lol.
