Frock No. 24

What a lovely Garden Party Frock.  I purchased this dress from a Church Garage sale for the pricey sum of $1.  Worth every cent as it's been worn to a Wedding, High Tea, Hen's Party, and just because I love it.  It is 100% synthetic and needs a slip so it is strictly a cooler weather dress.  Dress it up with gold heels, belt and clutch, or down with ballet flats and a practical bag.
This dress is a Damon International a division of Leon Cutler, I'm guessing it's late 70's or early 80's.  Worn today with my all time favourite belt, wooden, with mother of pearl dots.  My Fret belt.

Off to attempt some bound button holes.  I keep reading tutorials and books, but I don't think I will be able to do it until I give it a go; screaming, and unpicking; getting frustrated, trying and trying again.  Wish me luck, petals.
