This dress was over a year in the making. Any anything that could go wrong with it did. I think I did everything except the hem at least twice! The issue was more with my choice of fabric - a lovely china silk, but I kept forgetting which side I was planning to use as the front and pleated the wrong way (or thought I had pleated the wrong way, unpicked, redid and then realised it was right the first time....) I had a choice of shiny background and matt flowers, or shiny flowers and matt background.

In a moment of blog inspiration, I said to son J that if he drew me a picture I would make it for him on a cushion. So I got lovely picture with four stars with faces drawn on them. I hand embroidered the stars.
