Vintage Valentino Dress

Added Apr 4, 2014

I made this dress from a vintage Vogue Valentino pattern that I loved at first glance. I had to grade down the pattern a bit and there were a few fitting issues but all went well and I got a nice and comfortable dress.

Wool, Bemberg lining

    So pretty! It was worth working on grading down the pattern, details on this dress are so beautiful! And I also love this pastely shade of teal.
