#EasterSpringDress2017



Happy Easter dear readers, and what better day to reveal my #EasterSpringDress2017

  When I saw that Gertie was hosting a sew along for her summer dress pattern-Butterick B6453, I dropped all other sewing projects and had to start sewing this dress.


It also quite happily fitted in with the #EasterSpringDress2017 sew along that Akram from Akram's ideas blog and Judith from Judith Dee's World hosted.
So it ended up being extra fun!


It is a super simple and fun make, which allows a pretty print to be centre stage.


And the little straps have metal sliders which make the straps adjustable and give a professional, polished finish.


I wore this particular outfit to Greenway Estate in Devon, which was of course the summer home of the British author Agatha Christie- but then you already knew that, I'm sure.


It ended up being an incredibly warm and sunny day, perfect for wondering around the gardens in a pretty floral dress.


You can just see the house in the background. 


And never one to go on an outing without a craft of some sort, I spent a little while sat outside doing a little knitting in a deck chair, absorbing some sunshine.
How very British!
