New York, New Yo...
There’s something so harmonious + fun about wearing a girly frock in the Springtime— and we sure had fun shooting this dress under an exploding cherry blossom tree. The length of this pattern hits about mid calf and we shortened the length to make this retro look a bit more modern. The pattern also includes a petticoat-like underskirt! So charming…
Our gorgeous printed fabric is Kaffe Fassett for Liberty Art Fabrics, which was given to us to make beautiful clothing with! Thank you!
