Description

This is a simple pleated dress out of a lovely painted fabric. The top has a V neck shape at the front and back with extended shoulders. I place two small bows to give it a little contrast at the neckline. Only the top is lined.

The skirt as pleats that are folded towards the left direction at the front and right direction at the back. Zipper is enclosed at the back.

The dress was lovely and fun to wear :-)

    That bright blue really looks beautiful against your skin, and the style of the dress suits your figure too. Good choices!

    Nice fabric – looks really like a painter’s palette and I like the yellow bows for a contrast. V-neck and the longer shoulder lines make the silhouette well-balanced.
