On the back of my post about Kew, I thought I'd have a little chat about my outfit - and the me-made Check Please dress that has featured briefly on the blog before. Because Gareth took a lot of lovely photographs of me, I'm extremely vain and also I'm pretty damn good at colour coordinating my outfits!
This dress was actually made a year ago, now! And I loved it when I made it, but I just never wore it until the sun came out this year - and it's one of those dresses that I wear more often than I really should.
It was really simple to put together, the fabric is a beautiful 100% cotton check, fully lined with the softest white cotton I've ever felt (rescued from curtains, unbelievably!). The pattern is self-drafted, the No Cock Nor Tails bodice with a knife pleat dirndl. That's it, really. No pockets (gasp! horror!), no frills, just a damn good gingham dress!
