This dress started out as a costume for a Film Noir party I was invited to. I got so many complements on it I wear it to work sometimes. I used the pattern V8280 from Vogue. (I am not sure if I am supposed to put projects that are not Burda up….So someone virtually yell at me if I am doing something wrong and I will stop!)
I used a tiny houndstooth pattern suiting material. I am terrible at knowing what I am actually using. It is soft like a flannel but much less heavy.

Peneloping's hand beaded frock is a real stunner.
