March Dress!







I have been working on my March Dress for the Alice and Camilla project for quite awhile. First I dyed some old linen with Easter egg dye. It's a bit lighter than I wanted it to be, but it will work. The other colors (blue, pink, purple) turned out quite nicely. I then hand embroidered the flowers and the design around the neck. I am really enjoying embroidering and will share my other projects soon!

Jamie, your March dress is gorgeous! especially the tiny detail around the neck and I think the colour is just perfect!

Your dresses look so wonderful hanging together, beautifully
coordinated. Margaret

Wow, this is super amazing hand needle work. Those flowers must have taken you forever! And your dyed fabric is subtle, but perfect.

Like Margaret, I love how they are all so lovely hanging together, and it makes for a great review of previous months' dresses.
