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 print is difficult to see in photos. Dark blue with small white dots.
Cotton material, bought from spotlight. Easy to work with.
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
