Its been a gloomy couple of months in my household so what better eay to herald the somewhat belated arrival of Spring than with a flowery dress?

I used Simplicity pattern 2591 for this dress and made no real alterations. Let me tell you, Ill buy Simplicity again in a heartbeat, this is such a straightforward pattern. And my favourite part has to be the pockets - perfect for hiding marbles and sunglasses and all manner or summery things. Instantly the mean reds have become a thing of the past!

Another great thing about this dress is the fabric, that cost 3 a metre and hides all manner of spills and puddy paw prints...

Hope you like it!

Oh my goodness! I love the dress. The shape is so cool, the fabric is so beautiful. I would never have guessed it would turn out so well from the picture on the pattern.
Would you mind telling me where you bought the fabric from, please? It's SO pretty!
Great job  Smiley

That's adorable! It actually makes me want to try using a pattern, which is rare.

Thanks all!  The fabric is from a local shop in Liverpool called Abakhan Fabrics - they have an online shop too but I'm not sure how far they'll ship! x Wink

That dress is lovely and would definately reduce the mean reds and I think Miss Holly Golightly herself would think so too!  Smiley
