Rapid City, Sout...
Originally I wanted to name this dress something to the theme of a sci-fi dooms day dress because I think the print looks like the aftermath scene of a city in one of those futuristic apocalypse movies. But that’s kindof a downer, so instead the print also looks like worn and beaten up street pavement. This is a good dress for riding because of the A-line skirt. All in all I think the dress turned out very nice, the shoulder straps are a little smaller than I imagined they would be but they cover my bra straps so it’s ok. The only problems I encountered with the pattern is the neckline was very high so I lowered it and gaps a little all around, but not so much I can’t deal with it.
