For this I used the same pattern with pleats, as my previous purple dress. It's the same dress but in different material and color. I topstiched the dress  by hand with cotton perle thread (I know that I'm extremely boring, but I really love topstiching and my mother used to have a shop with these notions).











I hope you like it!

So pretty!  What a great dress - and the embroidering is the perfect touch.  Nice job!

The top stitching makes it look like a totally different spork pattern! Cheesy

Can you also wear it without the shirt for yet another great look?

too cute with those shoes!

Thanks so much to ask. I didn't even know what a spork was before coming to this forum Smiley

And still didn't find the answer.


I really like the dress, it's simple and stylish Smiley Really like tbucket too !
