Secret Garden Inspired Dress

I am a collector of many things, but vintage sewing patterns and old books are among my favourites. And the latest piece that I am working on for my portfolio is inspired by these two.

I found this 1953 girls dress pattern in an antique store, It was just so cute I couldnt resist. So I decided to use it as inspiration combined with one of my favourite books The Secret Garden. I have always loved the image on the cover of my 1956 edition, which I have made into an embroidery design that will be repeated along the hem of the dress.
