Dress for Nicki

I'm sure you've noticed that Nicki models a lot of my work. She is my friend and next-door neighbor. Well, the boy she is in love with is coming home from a long absence and she wanted a special dress for the occasion. She drew what she wanted to wear, and I made it. She chose vintage gabardine which I think looks beautiful.

Nicki is also an excellent photographer. You can see her work here.

    I love everything about this dress. Did you use a pattern or draft it yourself?

    It's a self-drafted pattern. I do most of my work that way.

Thanks for the note!
