Dress Design for Shabby Apple Dresses

Shabby Apple dresses is doing a wonderful competition for spring dress designs.

I thought I should give it a go! (Spring dresses are somewhat of a hobby of mine). Every year I love to make a brand new dress to celebrate the brand new season.

When designing this dress I couldn't help but think of robin egg blue skies and new flowers. The fabric would be a light weight robin-egg-blue cotton, with persimmon satin ribbons, and delicate cream lace on the sleeves and down the back. The collar will have uncomplicated stitching, making a simple and clean dress, with a feminine boldness.
So there you go.
