Rose’s Dress of Dreams


Rose’s Dress of Dreams‘ incorporates moonlight and sunlight. Rose dreams about dresses of silver and gold, lace and silk. Yet small town Abbeville offers her little encouragement. Using the inspiration of a palm reading, Rose travels to Paris. There she learns the craft of dress making under the care of a first class couturier. Chance plays into her hands when she delivers one of Mademoiselle Pagelle’s designs to the French court.

‘Rose’s Dress of Dreams‘ is descriptive, encouraging and truly inspirational. The story of Rose Bertin, dressmaker to Marie Antoinette is fascinating. It encouraged me to research her and her role in the French court, and with other European Royal houses, further.

Katherine Woodfine and Kate Pankhurst have created a really enticing story, sure to delight. This is a Barrington Stoke Little Gems’ dyslexia friendly title.
