AW17// 70s DRESS
The 70s are back. This dress is inspired by the recent collections by Gucci, who are making sure the trend comes back with a luxe bang. As well as other designers including Isabel Marant, the 70s Trend has featured across all the catwalks.
A versatile annual pattern, with options to make shorter or sleeveless versions. This is a great dress for a party, and perfect if you’re going into warmer seasons, or worn with tights during the Autumn and Winter months.
Demonstrated in our two differing samples, this dress can be made with a selection of variations. The Green floral version has been made to the full length with sleeves. The Lace version is sleeveless and a shorter length, made with two skirt panels rather than three.
The possibilities are endless, you could lengthen or shorten the panels to change the skirt proportions to create an individual look.
We have added extra frills to our floral sample for extra luxe glam appeal.
