It's a bit Summery, I think. It looks very casual for a funeral.
You might get away with it depending on your relationship to the deceased and their family, but if you are anything but a loose acquaintance, and you could inadvertently offend them. Or just feel really out of place all day, which might be worse!
It's fine, but I would wear opaques, if it's a bit short on you.
Unless otherwise specified, it's usual to wear sober coloured and modest clothing to a funeral. There's no need to wear all black, and in fact, I've seen lots of women wear really inappropriate dresses to funerals, because they were black (the dresses, not the women).
I think it depends on the funeral. I went to a v posh upper middle class one last year and expected it to involve well-cut jackets and gleaming footwear. I dressed accordingly and fitted right in. Most funerals round here, though, just involve looking as if you have made a bit of an effort to wear sober clothes, brush your hair, and clean your shoes. That blue dress would look fine at a funeral like that.
Maybe not if you are close family ,but with opaque tights and a jacket it will be fine .I wore a purple jacket with black trousers to a neighbours funeral in Feb as my 'best' winter cost is teal coloured and I thought it was bit bright .Too cold to go coatless .Said neighbour wouldn't have given a toss as long as I looked 'smart' ( we shared a love of clothes) but I didn't want to offend anyone
