Speaking about her inspiration for the look, she said: ‘I’ve always loved the power of clothes. Real style never goes out of fashion.
‘I love Audrey Hepburn, I think she’s amazing. So she’s my go-to. There’s something about her just looks effortless.’
The video shows Geri tracing and cutting out a dress pattern on white material and then sewing the pieces together using a sewing machine.
Geri proudly shows off the final results, posing in front of a mirror in the classic dress and then steps into a white Porsche and drives away.
She also posted pictures of the elegant dress to her Instagram page, captioning the post: ‘Got my scissors out! Dressmaking inspired by Audrey Hepburn, her style is timeless’.
