Blue Roses for Francie

I know I’ve been on a roll with blue and white dresses recently; that color combo just makes me think summer. I promise I’ll pull out more colors soon!

A while ago, I found a set of a dozen hankies on eBay. All had identical machine embroidered roses—4 in blue, 4 in pink, and 4 in yellow. I used 3 of the blue hankies to make the gored skirt of this dress so that I could take full advantage of the roses. A scrap of Dupioni silk was all it took to make the bodice. And a little rhinestone brooch coordinates beautifully. Available now in my Etsy shop.
