laura ashley









Mama had found this second hand Laura Ashley fabric, and I'm so glad she bought it for me! I think the flowers are really beautiful, especially as I don't often wear such big patterns. Even though the fabric is quite thick, I wanted to turn it into a dress. The pattern for the dress is from a Finnish sewing magazine (can't remember the name of the magazine, maybe Burda!), but I changed it a wee bit. My dress has an open back and it's a little shorter than the original one. It's a bit tight around my hips, not enough to make it uncomfortable, though!

Be sure to tell me what you think!
