You might have recognized the Malvarosa dress pattern from my handmade collection and from the pink babydoll post. This dress has always been one of favourite for its easy style and comfort, the flirty skirt and the hidden pockets of course.
So making it into a pattern has always been an option for me.
But I wanted to incorporate some elements from one of my all time favourite designers, famous for his babydoll dresses: Cristóbal Balenciaga.
The main characteristics of Balenciaga’s babydoll dresses were: the accentuated A-line and the fully gathered skirt (I didn’t go that puffy!), low waistline (around the hips) and drop shoulders (that’s a design I love). These models are from the 1950’s and 1960’s.
The lace version is stunning, wouldn’t that look amazing for the holidays?
