Working girl in Los Angeles dress

Paris, France






This dress is a must have if you like classic workstyle, with a bit of a chic and modernity. The pattern is from a French brand Louis Antoinette Paris that proposes both patterns or kits for a unique style.
I chose a stretch jeans fabric and pink piping to achieve this look, and I love how it turned. The assembling is super easy thanks to all notches and clear instructions. I will probably replicate this one in many other fabrics. Just make sure to select a fabric with a bit of stretch to be comfortable.
