    Oh my! How incredibly gorgeous. This is one of my favourite eras and you’ve done a beautiful job of interpreting it.

    Beautiful job! My husband just told me this week that his work Christmas party is 1930s themed, I’m really looking forward to making something super elegant for it ;) thanks for the inspiration xx

    What a stunning dress! I’ve been dreaming about sewing that dress for a while now, but never felt I was quite up to the challenge yet. (And rightly so.) But yours is absolutely beautiful! And you wear it very well, too, :-)
