Splendor in the Grass

Nothing could be more appropriate for a summer garden party or a simple picnic by the lake with friends than this Lanvin dress. The ladies in this lovely Edouard Manet painting could only have been so lucky to don Jeanne Lanvin. If they had, they wouldn't have needed to strip down halfway through lunch! But we digress....

If a lakeside picnic is not your speed, may we suggest the Serpentine Gallery Garden Party instead. The grey, black and white gingham taffeta is the perfect material, especially when lined with black grosgrain ribbon. There are two long black & white taffeta strips that are to be tied and used as a waist sash. Below we have shown two ways of arranging the sash, however the options are limited only by your imagination.
