So lately I have been experimenting with different dyes. I loved this color co
mbination, pink, orange and gold. I decided to keep the dress simple to show off the lovely colors.
Constructed out of hand dyed silk, this gold/magenta maxi dress is the perfect lightweight summer dress. The bodice features off-shoulder straps, which are finished with matching bias tape. The deep cut neckline is finished silk gauze. The back neckline is also low. The skirt has an additional layer of gauze silk, which is gathered towards the hem. This dress has an elastic waist band for extra comfort.
