La Parisienne in Paris

Added Feb 29, 2016

by marielaure

Paris, France






Today I present you a new dress that will enter my spring wardrobe: La Parisienne by Louis Antoinette.

What I love in this dress is the simple but elegant style, the faux two-pieces effect, the long but not-too-long sleeves perfect for the mid season, and all the variations allowed by this very clever pattern. I took a vintage print fabric to modernize the very classic shape and here we go! More details and pictures on my blog

Material Notes

vintage print cotton for the dress, cotton voile for lining, thread, 60cm invisible zip

      Thank you. I love the fabric too, although it wrinkles a lot :)

      Thx Mary ! It was really fun shooting. Actually this dress was made within a contest proposed by Louis Antoinette. It was a challenge for me, but I did it (but didn’t win :))
