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…..
