We have a girl crush at BurdaStyle: We <3 Kathleen from Grosgrain. Today we’re spotlighting for a second time the playfulness and talent of this sewing wonder. Remember when Nora & Benedikta created the Wiesn Dirndl dresses— the traditional attire for Oktoberfest in Germany and Austria? Today Kathleen shares with us her Wiesn Dirndl reinvented, she coined it the Summer at the Country House Frock. We’re in love!
A while back Kathleen discovered a very cute dress on Modcloth.com, which was the inspiration behind today’s playful creation— her dress looks just like it doesn’t it? Bravo!
