Loving this strapless ball gown in egg yolk yellow, I imagine it in a stiff taffeta with an insert in a white sheer fabric and layers. And layers of petticoats, the buttons would be faux and go from large to tiny as they head down the bodice to the skirt hem. Watercolour by Collette Fergus

Cross your hearts ladies, or the 'girls' anyway! Purple swing dress with a crossover bodice and insert. Border print on the hem finishes it off nicely. Watercolour dress by Collette Fergus

Sweetheart neckline with a ruched bodice, I imagine this dress in a raw silk with a black velvet trim. Loving the skirts and dresses I see with printed borders, so hard to find fabric like that, so my plan is to hand paint the hems on my dresses, one day when they come to life!

Watercolour dress by Collette. This baby blue 1950s day dress is one I've actually made up. The material is a soft cotton with a fine web like lace pattern. Strips of real vintage lace go right from the back over the straps and down the front, finished with baby blue velvet bows. A vintage chiffon scarf was used to top off the bodice. Worn with a full petticoat it's a fairytale dress.
