Description

I bought this book almost only for this dress on the cover! Those pretty pleats details, the light fabric (linen?), I tought it would be perfect for spring and late summer.
But at the end I’m not sure I really like it, the fabric is not as flowy as I would have liked and, let’s be honest, the dress look a lot like a nightgown!!!

    I really like this dress and the fabric is lovely. Try another fabric that is more drapey but do not discard this dress. You look great in it.
