|Lady Skater dress in rose print ponte knit|
I remember feeling secretly shocked at Mary's outright rude behaviour at the beginning of the story. It was incomprehensible to me that someone could and would behave that way and seem to get away with it! Colin's behaviour was not much better and I rejoiced when Mary gave him a very large piece of her mind! A young Raja, indeed!

It's due to The Secret Garden that I have a love of floral prints, specifically roses. Rose printed dresses are the most common floral in my closet and I always feel pretty and feminine when I wear them. I was missing rose prints in my winter wardrobe until Gillian shared photos of her floral print ponte knits. That girl knows her knits!
Fabric.com seems to be my go-to for online fabric shopping of late. They have what I'm looking for at good prices and the shipping is quite reasonable. It was a bit of a challenge to find a printed ponte knit that wasn't on a black background (I don't wear black very often) but I did find this one and this one.

It's my grown up Mary Lennox dress.
