I bought this vintage dress in London a good few years ago with the intention of wearing it to my brothers wedding, however the original colour was so insipid on me (pale lemon) it sat in my wardrobe for years unworn.
Which was such a shame as I love the style and just look at those little bows!
So recently I decided to chance dying it. I can see a few places where the dye didn't take as well as others but you would have to look very carefully to notice. I was considering dying it again but I think I should just leave it alone as the colour is so lovely and the thread shows up beautifully.
I recently sent a photo of myself wearing a Peta Pledger skirt to Peta as she put out a request on facebook. If you haven't seen her clothes and designs, just have a look at her wonderful clothes, all made by her and wonderfully made.
And as a thank you she sent me these wonderful earrings she also sells, and they just happen to look very similar to a ring I own! Thank you, I love them.
