Description

Well, Autumn has finally hit us here so this is the last summer frock I will be making for a while! I wasn’t sure about orange + my pale complexion but I ended up getting compliments (very unusually!) from some of the guys in my computer science paper, so I figure it must be ok.

I used a vintage pattern that had a relatively wide shirt-style collar, but I didn’t like the way it turned out and cut it down to a circular neckline. Probably a good thing in the end as there is quite a lot going on in the pattern of the fabric – I don’t think I needed too many competing design elements.

    I love this dress, the fabric is so pretty and makes me crave florals (and I rarely ever like florals!!) and the back neckline is sexy yet not too much, great work

    The colours really look great on you! You could also wear the dress in autumn, just with tights and a warmer cardigan. It would still suit the season and could remind you of summer.

    Nice dress and it really looks fabulous on you. I understand why you were concerned about orange on your pale skin – it’s sometimes disastrous, but you needn’t have worried, it works really well. Keep them coming. :-)

    Such a pretty dress! That fabric is gorgeous. I am really loving florals at the moment.

    This looks gorgeous on you! No wonder you got compliments. I love the style and agree that a simple neckline compliments the busy print.
