    Ooo what a lovely dress and great to see the fabric made up as I have the same fabric – from Fabrics Galore – but got it at the Sewing for Pleasure exhibition. Gonna make it into a top, so we won’t match! :-)

    Hi Everyone

    Thank you so much for your lovely comments. The pattern I used was Simplicity 2591. My shoes are from Irregular Choice and come in all sorts of different colours. They are really comfy

    I am going to make this dress again in different colours xx
