Greeny Dress

Added Apr 3, 2013

Chesterfield, Un...






You may think is too much green for one dress! I’m with you but I like it!
I’ve asked my mother to crochet the sleeves and collar and I’ve made the body in a cheap printed cotton.
I love playing with textures so the idea just came out and I’ve got to say: everytime I wear this dress people ask me where I bought it!

Material Notes

Sleeves & Collar: ANCHOR Thread 100% Egyptian Cotton
Body: 100% printed cotton

    great idea with the crochet sleeves. I’ve been thinking of doing something like this for a while – I really should do it as it looks amazing. Love all the green too.
