Cruise Embarkation Dress

Added Mar 26, 2011

by wendymichell...

St. Petersburg, ...






Contour bust dress with a spaghetti strap halter and piping along top and sandwiched between waistbands. Fully lined the bodice which made the piping along the top easier to install. I know the pics don’t show the skirt (just a gathered skirt with side pockets. I’ll add more pics when it gets out of the wash :)

Material Notes

cotton from Walmart! (can you believe it?? so cute!)




Spring, Summer
Garment Type
Beach, Casual, Classic, Preppy

    Oh how I love it, let me count the ways. This pattern doesn’t suit my body shape, but this dress makes me wish on a star that it did. That fabric is adorable and the piping completes the look PERFECTLY. Two thumbs way, way up.
