A tea dress

This dress is definitely for tea parties - with cake stands and fine china and scones and little pats of butter and apricot jam and lace tablecloths and embroidered tray cloths and pretty cloth napkins.  

I used some fantastic fabric I picked up at Vinnie's many moons ago - for somewhere between AUD1 and AUD5 and the pattern below which my mum gave me.  The original pattern has an elasticised waist, which I find lends itself a little too much to the frumpy and lumpy and bumpy, so I left it out.  The sash brings in the waist and of course, a cute belt would too.
