Description

I’m so incredibly happy with this dress. What do you think?

The crazy orange, hounds tooth-like, stretch fabric was rescued from an old strapless dress that I wore only a handful of times before having kids.

The bottom of the dress is black ITY jersey. As the gathers sit mid-upper bust, I knew that I needed a super drapey fabric to ensure this didn’t look like a maternity dress. I think I’ve succeeded!

    You look great in this dress and definitely not maternity looking. This dress is going to be great for summer especially on a hot day.

    Beautiful! Very flattering, and I love your fabric choice. You’ve done a nice job with the drape of the black fabric.
