I had seen this dress when Betty modelled it for Scarlett and Jo, but I couldn't justify the £72 price tag, not even for a party. I kept keeping an eye on the Evans website and eventually the dress went to half price, just £36. That was much more my speed, so I ordered it straight away. I love it even more in person. It's sort of a stretchy cotton, and it's fully lined (I wore a red bra underneath and you can't tell) and the pattern is just gorgeous.
I'm wearing it with leggings from George at Asda and a lace-backed shrug from New Look, both of which you've seen before.
