Spring is in the air … on the other side of the world. Sigh.
This dress is inspired by the beautiful cherry blossom that was in full bloom on my recent visit to Washington D.C.
The result is a quirky dress with a clashing pink cotton/lame bodice and red dupion skirt.
I love the cheerful girly-ness of this dress, though I’ll probably never have the guts to wear it out in public. If any one decides to host a ‘Strawberry Shortcake’ themed party however, I’d be all over it.
For more details and photos on this dress, including a tutorial on how to make these sleeves, visit my blog at JuliaBobbin
