I read it myself (an adult)
Rose's Dress of Dreams: (Little Gem) 9781781127681
5 stars
Rose's Dress of Dreams is a super little read - published by Barrington Stoke in the Little Gems series, it's a fictionalised account of the life of Rose Bertin, said to be the world's first fashion designer.  Printed on cream paper with good spacing and beautiful illustrations by Kate Pankhurst (remember Fantastically Great Women Who Made History?) this is a relaxing, easy read, perfect for reading for pleasure.  Aimed at 5 years and upwards, it would be lovely to read to a child as a bedtime story but equally good as a first chapter book to read solo.  I loved reading about Rose and her journey to the French court and feel inspired to go and research her more - thanks Katherine Woodfine!
