Laura Ashley Floral Maxi

Glasgow, United ...






I bought this pattern from the US, we can’t get Laura Ashley patterns in the UK! I wanted to make it in a print that is arranged in horizontal stripes (I’m not sure of the technical term for this!) The pattern’s great, if a little big, and this has been one of the easiest dresses I have ever made!

    Beautiful work, reminds me of the dresses my Mom used to wear in the 70’s (but your fabric is soooooo much nicer). Love this dress.

    Looks gorgeous, and I can imagine quite lovely to wear too, as if you are floating as apposed to walking!

    This gorgeous. I’ve just seen a similar dress at the Victoria & Albert museum in London on the Grace Kelly dresses exhibition. So really fit for a princess. Really cool. How’s Scotland? Was just there two weeks ago and it was glorious!
