Description

This was a labour of love. I put so much time in to this dress, just making it perfect in every way, for no other purpose than to do justice for such a beautiful floral print.. I have an almost disgusting obsession with the colour purple, but when combined with a traditional floral print i become a dribbling melty piece of chocolate that you left in your car in the summer..

There is a (now) faux button placket up the front, and taffeta binding around the neck. I beaded a single row of steely blue seed beads just between the binding and the floral, to give it some dimension and a little something special.

There was no pattern that i can say i used, because it was Frankensteined from a number of patterns that i own. The dress is a few years old now, so I’ll be damned if i can remember what the patterns were.. anyway, there are darts in the front and back of the bodice, and i used a simple no dart flared pattern piece for the skirt, added some ruffles, and called it a day…
