The "Amanda" Heart and Arrows dress is inspired by Ginger Rogers in the 1938 movie "Carefree." The dress is titled "Amanda" after Ginger Roger's character in the movie. The dress is based on a pattern from the late 1930s. It is shown in black twill but can also be made in crepe, velvet and satin. The dress features two tie backs at the waist that can either cinch the waist from the back or be worn as a belt tied in front. The appliques are completely made by hand and the dress is made to measure, both in the USA.
