May 17th Green Spring Dress

It was a gorgeous day today in the country with plenty of sunshine and everything looking a vibrant bright green. Typically I was inside sewing dresses until tea time but managed a long walk with my spaniel who had decided to be the bully of the lane by barking (and dribbling) on a poodle!

This dress had been made for me by Anna and I had left it unfinished until now, I just needed to add the ruffle sleeves and the detchable bow to complete the dress. Anna is a first class sewer and a very good friend who helps me with the dresses making sure they are perfect, so this is a collaboration today.

The fabric used for the dress is a vintage 60's acetate screen print with a satin binding.
