Auckland, New Ze...
This dress is my first adventure in colour blocking.
I drafted the pattern myself and it needed considerable tweaking but now its done and it was worth it. IT was based on a dress I loved but could not afford (Story of my life!).
Sadly the weather has now turned a little cold for it and I might have to wait till next spring to wear it.
The flowers were not put there for effect, they are hiding from the frost in my living room…..
Cotton blend lawn.
