Los Angeles, Cal...
I used an ultra-cheap polyester knit to test out this dress because I wasn’t sure if I was going to dig the end result, but as it turns out, I’m very very pleased with the style and fit! It kinda reminds me of an ice-skater’s outfit.
Since it was a knit (and a test), I didn’t bother with edge finishes nor did I hem it. Also, I could have done a better job distributing the gathers around my skirt (I ALWAYS have a problem with even distribution!). Still, it’s cute and casual and I’m about to step out in it for a lazy stroll around town.
