This one is my favourite. I love the drapey bit at the side. I also like that the woman in the middle looks like she's gazing lovingly at the woman on the right and holding onto her dress.

So, I made another pair of Schiaparelli inspired sunglasses. I wanted them to look like one of the pairs in my original post that had pink and black roses. I couldn't find any black roses so I did pink and white. I like them, but I regret using the bright pink a little bit since I don't really wear pink, and most of my clothes don't go with them.
The dress is another thing I kind of regret. I made it a few years ago when I was just starting to sew vintage patterns. I love the fabric but don't like the drop waist. I don't know what I was thinking. I was probably seduced by the pretty 1950s pattern envelope and didn't think about the fact that drop waists remind me of the '80s. I'm making myself wear it because it seems like a waste of time and nice fabric if I don't.
