I so love the colour turquoise, it is a lovely shade of blue and it is a colour that is so fitting for spring/summer. I use the famous dress style from the magazine 02/2011.
I modified it by not using a gathered skirt but instead a pleated flare skirt with pockets. I place bows along the front and back neckline to created impact. I created 12 bows and then pair them in twos and place then strategically around the neckline. The bows were a little time consuming but it was well worth it because I so love my dress.
