Sherri of Thread Riding Hood made a perfect travelling day dress out of the striking African Palm Indigo fabric and the April Rhodes Staple Dress pattern. She chose for colour, drape and density of pattern and it all came together beautifully.
Sherri made the pattern her own by modifying the pattern to create a new hemline that adds to the easy going elegance of her look. If you're not confident revising patterns (I am definitely not!), check out her blog for a clear and easy to follow tutorial and creating this shirt tale effect. It takes the dress in another direction.

Check out this beautiful bundle curated by Holly at Bijou Lovely . You can win it if you go to her blog and participate. It's a really pretty mix of summery colours and beautiful designs. She is a professional photographer and has a great eye. I think this is fresh and full of pop.
