    • Thank you! I love the dress and received multiple compliments on it as I shopped yesterday. Though they were salespeople trying to sell me stuff…
      Anyway, I’ll take them!

  1. How pretty! I love it. I think the bias cut of the top adds to the feeling of movement and defines your upper body nicely while making your legs look like the go on and on. Total win!

    • Thank you so much! I like the fluttery overlay. Especially since I don’t generously fill out a bodice.
      While shopping I saw similar maxi dresses selling for far more than I paid for fabric! And there’s no way they would have reached my ankles.
      Thanks for the comment! Means a lot.

    • Yeah, the hem isn’t perfect but I get some serger lessons next month. But good enough for a vacation garment!
      I wanted the backdrop to have desert, wind turbines and mountains…we just had to slightly trespass to get the shot. 🙂
