red rose lawn dress

This is the first time I have used the luscious lawn fabric and it didn’t disappoint! I used the Elisalex bodice (once again), an elbow length sleeve and a full gathered skirt to create this 50s style dress.

Looking at the picture above, I think the silhouette would be better emphasised with a petticoat. Another to add to the list!

I love the way that the rose print disguises the princess seams even though it would have been impossible to match up the print.

Beautiful dress. The fabric almost looks textured.

Wow! I thought this was an ad when I first saw the photo on my bloglovin. Gorgeous dress! You look fabulous and a petticoat will only make it even better!
