A LBD of wool crepe based on a mid-50s dress that my Grandmother made for herself, and which I loved and wore until the early synthetic knit started to disintegrate. Time for a new one for me!
The inspiration for the dress was a pair of vintage marcasite dress clips that Mr D gave me for our 6th wedding anniversary.
