“Oh, I’m not trying to land him. I’m just using him for sex.”
I made this version of the iconic brown dress from Pretty Woman last month and wore it on Melbourne Cup day.
I put a lot of thought into which pattern to use, I had to hunt a lot harder than I thought would be necessary to find the fabric, the gloves were a lucky market find, and the belt was purchased new.
I am so proud of this dress. More on my Blog
Medium weight cotton (I’m sure the original is like a crepe de chine or something lighter like hat, but this works ok.) I lined it with cotton batiste.
Pattern of the Week
