I heart plaid!!! I like loud. I like patterns. I love being a girl! So I threw a GALA for all of my girls knowing full well I would design and make a dress for the event. I found this fabric and thought: flounce. And flouncy plaid it has become!

Material Notes

Navy and white plaid taffeta




Garment Type
Evening Wear, Rock, Romantic
Silk, Taffeta
