"Classy" Casual Giraffe Dress

Added Feb 4, 2012

Los Angeles, Cal...






I wanted a casual, but still classy, blouse-y, elastic waisted summer dress. Unfortunately, green and purple giraffes decided to parade across the skirt, rendering its classiness questionable. At least I finished all the inside seams?

    I think Giraffes by their very stature and nature exhibit a substantial amount of class! Wonderful use of this fabric!!

    I think it’s a wonderful piece – I love your designs. :) I am looking for fabric to attempt the anthropolgie dress you posted – I fell in love with the design (and your instructions are so helpful).
