I love this style of dress. It’s so cute with a high neckline and back, sleeves and a short skirt. So when I found this gorgeous cotton complete with roses and pink bows I knew it had to become one of these dresses! So I just used a size small of the Pete pattern (in future I’ll probably use a medium so it’s a bit more baggy at the top), lengthened it and made a simple belt of the same fabric. I love it!
