Houndstooth dress

I made this dress to wear in December, during the holiday season. It is made of a medium weight wool silk blend. I lined the dress in red, so that when the skirt moves, you will occasionally get a bright flash of color. I love the 1950’s feel of this dress. I wear it with black tights and black booties. I also wear my charm bracelet with it, to give it that vintage feel, and the black wide belt really shows off the waistline. I have thought about making this dress again sometime in a lighter fabric, such as cotton or linen.
Right now I am working on a dress for Ciarra. It is based on a 1970’s dress. It is adorable! I can’t wait until it is done, and I can post the pictures!
Until next post
