In my vintage silks

I found this very happy and bright printed dress in a box while unpacking my Summer stuff. I haven’t seen this gem in ages! I remember buying it at a vintage market in Long street four years ago. It is 100% silk and made in Italy. The neckline was very high and round, which made it a bit outdated         ( and uncomfortable ). I finally got around to taking it to my seamstress and asked her to simply lower the neckline and to shape it in a slight boat neck. As you can see, she did a great job. I am so stoked to have rediscovered this beaut!

Special thanks to Andrew who took these photographs.
