Blue and white prints and designs have always been very striking to me. There are such interesting backgrounds associated with blue and white motifs among various cultures. Chinoiserie and Delftware derived from the Netherlands, for example. My mom has always had a wonderful collection of Delftware, (a lot of which came from Colonial Williamsburg) so that is very likely one reason I am drawn to blue and white prints…it’s apparently ingrained.
So, I made this dress over the summer with the intention of wearing it to a wedding but opted for a different one. I wanted to wait until the winter to do a blog post with this dress because I thought the blue and white print would probably stand out way better with a snowy white background.
