This is an ultra chic dress with a crossover style in the front and back. Adding interesting fullness to the bodice, one shoulder is gathered and the other is pleated. This dress cinches nicely at the waist with an elasticated casing, making it comfy to wear to any occasion. You could add sleeves, or drop the hemline to floor to make a maxi dress.
