Another handmade gem
This little dress is so sweet although every time I put it on I think, do I look like a school girl? It is handmade and there are so many things good about it and so many that are, not so good.
Some of the detailing is lovely like the button panel down the front.
The shape of the collar at the back and the little...I don't know what you would call it?...panel on the back, and the material. But some of the sewing looks like it has been hastily sewn together at the last minute so I had to do a bit of mending.
That's what you get when you buy vintage dresses that are handmade, but I think it is worth the purchase because you know someone took time to sit down and make a dress for themselves or a loved one. They will never know that someone appreciates all their effort.
Dress: Retro Star
Shoes: Rubi Shoes
