How romantic.

My friend and I went to the arthall in Rotterdam and saw an exhibition called ICON DRESSED designed by Annette Meyer, each garment was made of paper and represented a decade of women clothing from the 1800's till now. I was amazed by a garment which looked exactly like the dress Keira Knightley wore in Pride & Prejudice, I went home got into a romantic state of mind, converted that into creativity and made this.

I love this! I've been looking for a shrug type of top to wear over a halloween costume for a pregnant woman... This one will fit my shoulders and still expose the baby belly nicely♥
