Description

I made this dress for my upcoming honeymoon :D

It is a simple shift dress, finished off with a thin, contrasting bias binding neckline. It is made with a linen/viscose blend, which was lovely to sew with.

I liked the simple princess lines and the drape of this dress, and can’t wait to wear it to somewhere warm!

    I love this dress on you. The shape is beautiful, and not boxey like so many other shift dresses I have seen as of late. BTW the color is perfect.

      I know what you mean with the boxy shift dresses – Whilst I think they suit some people, personally I struggle to rock the 60s style so much x
