Bronte dress

Here it is. My Bronte dress.




I have had the idea of the design for long now, but couldn't decide on the fabric I was going to make it from. When I saw this woolen fabric I knew it will be perfect for this - and it really proved so.

I love the dress. It feels so comfortable yet it is feminine, desirable and romantic.
That's due to the open neckline and the lovely collar which is ruffled a bit.
At first I wanted to make long sleeves, but just couldn't imagine the dress with such and I left it with short sleeves. Like it better this way.
Just as an afterthought. Many of you may wonder why the "Bronte" dress.
I have this insatiable desire to name my projects no matter whether it concerns clothing, a piece of jewelery or a plain napkin. I believe it gives them character and creates special feeling about them - and in the end - it's just funnier and cute that way! I am sure you all know now why it is "Bronte".
