Retro Wedding Dress

A little 1960s influence in a silk twill, knee-length dress. (The customer tells me she's wearing a little pillbox hat with it. Yippee!)

(Had to take the photos at night, unfortunately, but at least it was a nice, light-catching fabric!)

The twill was fun to work with. Extremely soft, very drapey, yet strangely able to retain edges and shape. I'm a fan. (It's also lined with this soft pongee...it really would be a delight to wear.)

Finally getting over my nervousness with buttonholes...and man. I love retro shoulder darts.
Not to mention retro ELBOW darts! So cute! Why don't we do this anymore??
