Sea of stripes

Added Jun 20, 2011

Rochester, New Y...






Maxi dress in a very fluid fabric that I bought online. It’s always a risk to buy fabrics online, but I’m very pleased with this one. The material is a stretch rayon blend knit and it was a bit transparent so I used a nude fabric for lining. Initially, I was concerned about the larger stripes on my hips, but I think it worked quite well.

    Nice. Looks like something out of a cruise-line / swimwear catalogue.

    Yes, the stripes work! I love striped jersey, and I’ve got some in my stash. It’s surprising how it can look good even when you don’t think it will. Here it looks darling. And I love how you’ve paired it with the fedora. Smashing!
