Slip into a different time when you don these dresses.
Dresses from the time your grandmas were the little ones.
There’s a piece of the past in these handmade dresses from Let’s Backtrack. Founded, designed and handmade by Hannah Taylor-Anderson who uses a Husqvarna sewing machine, keeps patterns in vintage suitcases and uses a 1950’s turquoise sunbeam iron, this clothing label is a dedication to the simplicity of the nostalgic clothing of the past. When you go to view the dresses displayed on her Etsy virtual shelf, you can’t help but to feel transported into a time when your grandmas were just born.
The dresses of the 30s were simple in the way they’re cut and on Let’s Backtrack, the gently cinched waist and A-line flared skirt are leaned into with the hand of artistic tailoring by Hannah, with the top part of the dress is made such as that it is blousy. The buttons are functional and a hidden zipper holds the dress in place. For sizing assistance, do get in touch with the dressmaker as she will help you with that and more.
If you’re a fan on nostalgic dressing and have a love for dresses that are demure and understated in expression, I’m most certain you can’t resist her collection.

“Time really is one big continuous cloth, no? We habitually cut out pieces of time to fit us, so we tend to fool ourselves into thinking that time is our size, but it really goes on and on.” — Haruki Murakami
