Blake Lively has designed her first dress.

The 'Gossip Girl' star took to her Instagram account to share a photograph of herself modelling the retro inspired creation, which features an elegant cream v-neck top and flowing patterned pink and grey skirt.

The blonde beauty - who has five-month-old daughter James with her husband Ryan Reynolds - looks stunning in the summery midi dress which is available to buy on her lifestyle website Preserve for $230 (£150).

The 27-year-old star created the mod-feminine frock with the help of the Preserve-approved 'Amourt Vert' label, who pride themselves on their strict green policy by creating garments without producing waste.

The 'Age of Adaline' star proudly shared her debut design on the picture-sharing site, writing ''I may not be able to draw worth a lick, but I am proud of this dress I co-designed with Amour Vert for @preserve_us.''

The stylish star also captioned the snapshot. ''You better send me pics if you buy it! I want to share your photos!! #PRSRV so I see it. (sic)''

It's no secret that Blake has always wanted to try her hand at fashion design.

She previously said: ''To be honest, I could really see myself opening a clothing label and might even do it one day.''
