PATTERN

 

Hi there,Today, I am excited to introduce my Ayza Dress pattern.
I have created this dress thinking about the Summer/Fall transition and the ideal dress to layer with your favorite cardigan and tights.I have worked in collaboration with Shabby Fabrics to create something unique and flattering.
About the Fabric
When asked to choose a fabric, I fell in love with Lexington Collection, from Moda Fabrics;  I love the vintage denim style of it.
For some reason, it reminds me of the 90’s, and I will explain why:
I used to have a similar dress in 92, though I was wayyyyy younger :)
I love how feminine it was, all tough it up with a pair of black military boots.  It was, by far, my favorite outfit.I wanted to re-create the feeling of femininity of that dress.  So, I hope it worked out well :)Do you want to know more about this fabric?  Click here
