Description

This dress is made of the same pattern like my Mint Dress with just 4 alterations:

1. square neckline
2. side part of the skirt is pleated
3. center part of the front skirt is shorter – as a reflexion of the neckline
4. dress is lined for 2 reasons: fabris is slightly transparent and it scrtches on the skin.

The fabric is a beautiful linen/rayon blend with gold threads – only disadvantage: it wrinkles when you just look at it…

My hubby means this dress is sexy… hmmm, in my eyes it is rather elegant… everyone sees what they want :-)

      Thank you Mary! I think I know why my hubby finds it sexy: because the front is shorter :-) generally I don’t wear such short skirts any more, as you say: showing less is more interesting!
