This outfit of both dress and purse is my imitation of something from the Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2016 collection. For the dress, I started out with a 70’s vintage knit in a black and white tulip flower print, and colored it in with fabric markers before sewing it up using the “Gather and Tuck” Burda pattern #112. My purse was self-drafted by looking at existing handbags from the 40’s and 50’s. It is felt with faux snakeskin leather, and fleur-dis-lis charms of a lock, key, and crown to weigh down the flap.
