I fell in love with this wool fabric instantly and it’s all thanks to the color. It was made for fashion show in style of the 60’s, complete with a tulle petticoat, long gloves and created special belt of the same fabric. For casual style the dress goes with blouse or in cold weather with pullover. All dress has lining.

    Wow, the lining and zipper look store-bought professional! Beautiful color. I too have been eyeing a blue wool at my local fabric store, for a pencil skirt, but maybe a dress is in order…

    Great dress, great picture. Very romantic, dreamy like. The picture location and the colors of surroundings are perfect. Timeless…. It all makes me want to be there too and feel free or something like that :)

      I am glad about your comment, because finding this door was a curiouse coincidence that made photographer and me smile about our luck. :) And now it is more important that someone else appreciate it. Thanks!
