spotty rose dressI’m on a roll with summer sewing, spurred on by the amazing heatwave we are experiencing in the UK.

This is the 4th dress I’ve made using this bodice pattern but the only one that I would say fits properly.

I’ve only just got used to wearing full skirts but I love the 1950s vibe this style has. And its great for accessorising with a pair of crazy, pink, furry, leopard-print shoes!

It nearly wasn’t a real dress as I didn’t like the fabric. I only intended it to be a toile before I cut my special fabric. But when I saw how it looked I decided it was for keeps after all!
