      Not so easy to explain – but absolutely not difficult to make. If you read my blog post about this dress, you’ll find a link to the book/pattern I’ve used for the collar part.

    I love this dress. The colour combo is great, and the neck line is super cute.

      Thank you – and I agree with you on the fabric. It also comes in other beautiful colorways.
