I've just completed my first custom order for my shop. I had a request to make a dress like this:
...but in a size six and with no doily feature.
I had the same main fabric to work with, but none left of the darker pink of the sleeves, so I went for white and pink florals on the sleeves and a white hem ruffle instead.
After talking baking for the kindergarten fair with the kindy mums in the morning all I could think about when sewing this pink and white creation was...coconut ice. Strange, I've never even made coconut ice! Its kind of appropriate though as this dress and another will be shortly winging their way to mid-summer in the UK.
