      Thank you! The scrabble necklace was from Stuffed Nonsense – there’s a link on my blog. They make lots of cute things!

    I think this is one of my favorites of the cut out dresses I’ve seen around here. I love the pink and green stripe. Great job!

    So cute! I love the stripe you chose—it’s perfect for this sort of design and summery frock. :)

    Absolutely stunning!! I love being inspired by other people’s creations. Very cute and oh-so English. What pattern did you use?

      Thank you very much for your kind comment! I didn’t really use a pattern – I started off with Burdastyle’s Danielle for the bodice but if did not fit me at all so I drafted a new one. The waist band and skirt were just rectangles. Pretty simple really!

    An amazing dress. So jealous as I can’t wear a cut out like that as I need to always wear a bra.
