I made this summer dress last year from some beautiful bright blue fabric decorated with sketches of Brighton Pavillion. I took AGES trying to make sure that the neck ruffle was evenly gathered (yes, I had to resist the temptation to try to measure all of the ruffles individually…!), but think it looked ok in the end. It is lovely to have some sunny weather to wear it again this year (this photo was taken yesterday), and I thought that the blue fabric against the green grass and chestnut horse (yes, he’s ginger) really made all the colours pop. It took a lot of courage to post a photo with me in though!
