Modest and Pretty Traditional First Holy Communion Dress

I'm not sure, but I think this just might be one of the prettiest I've made! The fabric is lovely, but it was a one-off, so I won't be able to reproduce it, I'm afraid. I've had such a hard time finding pure cotton broderie anglaise at a reasonable price per metre this year,

I took this on a sunny day before it was
finished - not being certain whether we'd
have any more sunshine before I sent it off.
I love the way the light catches in the fabric,
and yet it remains modest as the body is fully lined.

Just got it in the post to Samantha today, and the sun
obliged for a few minutes after I'd finished sewing,
before I packed it up!
