Rockalily Style - Going Gaga for Gingham

This is a homemade dress that my mother gave me 5 years ago. It's from a Vintage Vogue dress pattern, and despite being a well-versed seamstress she said it was the most challenging item she'd made!  It was a surprise gift too, so she didn't get to measure me or make any adjustments in the way you would usually when making a dress from a pattern. Five years on and it's still going strong!
