Style Sunday: The Paris Dress
There are times in life when a few of your favourite things come together and makes something so wonderful you feel like you might actually pop.That is exactly what happened when I came across this amazing Jenny Hart Paris Dress over on ModCloth. Designed by pin up model & and vintage fashion designer Bernie Dexter this dress, like all of her mind blowing collection, has a flattering retro shillouhette that will make every woman feel like a star from the golden age of Hollywood! The choice of fabric for this dress is a real no-brainer if you take a look over the amazing stitching work of Jenny Hart – founder of the most glorious embroidery store Sublime Stitching – her modern take on retro stitching designs is mirrored in this stylish and quirky retro print from fabric designer Michael Miller with coral pink and duck egg blue.
So, let’s just recap on the awesome that has gone into this dress…
