It's out there by the truck load at the moment and what's not to love? It screams Summer countryside, girly, twirling fun - only problem for me is you mainly find it in white and with two young children, white isn't really a sensible option.

Broderie Anglaise (French, 'English Embroidery') is characterized by patterns composed of small holes or eyelets bound with overcast or buttonhole stitches, it arose in England in the 19th century and is making another very successful comeback for Summer 2012.

Okay, it hardly looks like Summer outside but lets not let Mother Nature beat us down, lets show her what she's missing!
