I started this dress last summer on a whim the day before we had to leave to go to my friend Kat’s wedding in North Carolina. It was turning out so nicely, I decided I didn’t want to rush it, and boy did I take my time. I pulled it out of it’s storage bag about 2 weeks ago and finished it up.
The details : strapless dress with boned interior bustier. Bodice and hem colorblocked piecing with a empire waist in front which dips down to the true waist in the back. The white fabric is cotton, grey is silk and the coral is “assorted fibers” according to the tag at the fabric store. The bustier is canvas (but not regular canvas) and silk charmeuse.

Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
