1960's Inspired Jumper Dress

Over the last several months I have been working on something a little different than my usual designs and I'm happy I can finally share it with you. This jumper dress is very much inspired by my love of the 1960's. I have always dreamed of making a dress with a fabric covered belt and buttons. I think they add the perfect touch to a vintage inspired garment. I was so excited to find someone who has a machine to make fabric covered belt buckles and I hired her to make me some for this dress. I think this style is so flattering for many body shapes and hope to make a summer version of this dress in a lighter cotton fabric. Of course I'm always open to custom orders and would be happy to discuss other fabrics if you are interested. I hope you enjoy these pictures that were taken during a snow storm! I know it's a little late as everyone is thinking of spring and summer clothing. But I didn't want to wait until next year to show you this dress!

  4. I am a fan of 1960s (and 1970s) dresses and this one is stunning! It suits you so well, I've always felt like you've got a bit of retro (in the best possible way) in you. That colour is gorgeous and complements your hair so well. Lovely Anna! :)
