Description

My first dress made when I was fifteen. Based on Simplicity 5091. Inspired by my idol at the time, Gwen Stefani and the dress she wore in the film clip to my favourite song at the time, Don’t Speak. Wore this dress everywhere. Love the collar on the dress. No zip. Loose fitting with a tie on the back.

Material Notes

Material print is difficult to see in photos. Dark blue with small white dots.
Cotton material, bought from spotlight. Easy to work with.

    This dress looks fab. I love Gwen’s style, especially THAT dress in Don’t speak. Apparently she found it in a thrift shop and it smelt quite bad!

      Don’t you just love that song! So much emotion. Gwen is definately awesome— her uniqueness has been something I’ve aspired to over the years— but in my own way of course! Thats why I love handmade clothes— the one-of-a-kindness.
      Thanks for your comment.
