Having made the blue Liberty print dress, I decided to use a piece of raspberry linen to make another one. I changed the neckline and added patch pockets.
It seems, I never really get the look right until the second wearing. Does anyone else have this problem?
Apart from that, they are perfect summer dresses. (Note the irony.)
Before Hubby got to France, a friend and I had a two day break in Jersey, staying in a smart hotel with a posh dining room. I had not taken dress clothes with me to France, so I had to make do with the raspberry dress. I smartened it up by wearing red shoes and a necklace from a collection that my friend sells on her site: http:zippy-zebra.surinternet.com.
