This dress has been sitting in my sewing kit, waiting to be finished for a long time. I started it when I was in my final year of university. So it has been about 4 years in the making! Everything was complete, I just had to hand sew the hem (my least favourite task because it takes so long!). I finished it this morning and tried it on. Unfortunately it is a little too big in the top (you can see that it is kind of baggy there) as I have lost a tiny bit of weight since I started making it.
Here are some photos:
The material has a gingham kind of pattern. It is cornflower blue and also has little flowers embroidered all over it.
Shoes are from No 1 Shoe Warehouse – from their retro collection a few years ago.
I would love to get one of those petticoats to wear underneath that puff the skirt up!
