Dressing for a Wedding in the Sunshine

I made this dress for a client going to a wedding in a sunny climate. I loved it so much, I went back to buy extra fabric to make myself a dress. Oh don't hold your breathe I have many, many, many of these impulse buys, or should I say good intention buys. Never mind, even if I don't get round to making it for myself, I am sure someone will turn up wanting a dress from the fabric.  You may have noticed I have used the dress as my blog background. At least this way I can be seen to be wearing it, be it on my blog.
