Influenced by Bobby Darin and Grace Kelly, my new design is straight out of the Fifties! This blue silk chiffon is a piece of vintage fabric from old, it’s really soft, delicate and has a fantastic drape.
Floaty and light as a feather, I knew this would make a fabulous homage to Grace Kelly in her beautiful Edith Head designed costume from ‘To Catch a Thief’. She was inspired by Christian Dior, so I think I am in good company.

Draped fabric over a fitted bodice, full gathered skirt and matching scarf, perfect for wearing in an open top sports car, the scarf flowing behind in the breeze…..can you picture it?
I made tiny straps from embroidery thread, and the dress is lined with a pale blue fabric to highlight the intense blue of the chiffon. I think I may have to make this dress in my size.
And have a look at the man himself….
