This is the dress I made for Joshua's wedding. I was so happy with it and got heaps of compliments on it, even from people who didn't know that I made it (which is always nice!)

The inspiration really hit when I discovered the material in Spotlight, a gorgeous turquoise cotton with a white vine print. To create the pattern I mixed a few favourites. The skirt and middle is from Simplicity 4581 and the bodice is modified from Simplicity 3867. It fits so nicely and feels lovely to wear.

The shoes were a bit of a surprise. I had navy wedges already that I was going to wear, but I was walking through Target a few weeks before the wedding looking for something else and these shoes just jumped out at me! These wedges are so cute and exactly the same colour as the dress, so I had to get them to complete the look.
