Many of us loved the long sleeved maxi dress from a recent post I did on 7 Ways to Wear Green—so I had to make this dress and see the outcome on my own. I plan to wear this dress to a wedding in the summer, it would also suit a bohemian bride as a gown!
I adore the cocoon-like shape of the skirt, the full skirt curves in towards the ankle, making a what could be retro silhouette modern. It would look nice in a print yet the style lines are interesting enough in a solid color. I did an invisible bias tape hem at the bottom and sleeves.
This is my final project as BurdaStyle’s Creative Director and Editor, please see my farewell post here!
