I sewed up Simplicity 1609 which is a reproduction vintage pattern. I used a 100% wool I bought on a trip to Italy earlier this year. Love this little number!

    Nice dress: simple, classic and elegant and it suits you well: the colour and fitting are great:)

    Wow, what a great dress! I already loved it before I could make out the bow but the bow is really the icing. And it’s a great color for you. I’m going to look up that pattern!
