Race day: fashions on the field

Here's a little frock I made a little while ago to wear to Canberra's Thoroughbred Park, to be a judge of the fashions on the field! Naturally off-the-rack wouldn't do and something unique was called-for. I used this adorable exclamation fabric from Tessuti Fabrics (love!) and without using any pattern whatsoever...

I managed to pull it off! A gathered neck with stand-up collar fitted shift. Worn with black leather triple buckle belt, vintage black gloves, satin peep toe heels with cutie ruffles, Chanel bag and fascinator by friend, Deanna Mann. Fun!
