Description

this dress is based off of a pattern from the book Famous Frocks. i modified it a bit though to create a more interesting collar/neckline, and subbed out the suggested grosgrain ribbon for the tie and instead used the original fabric. it was meant to be inspired by farrah fawcett a la charlie’s angel’s but i think my end result is more kate middleton – and i love the result! more info at my blog – http://ahhhmazing.com

    love what you did with the tie and neckline here …. adds an extra level of femininity.
