I needed a style to show this lovely fabric so I use a simple easy style. This has a slight sweetheart neckline not too deep so has to reveal too much cleavage but accentuate it instead. It has pleated skirt with four kiss pleats two at the front and two at the back. The pleats are tuck about 7 inches from the waist to allow the pleats to remain in place without have to press it in. I lined the look as to give it a clean finish.
The rosette on the belt is also made by me and I wear the belt to bring out the tan colour in the fabric.
I really like the simplicity of the style and let the fabric do the talking. I am so loving it as it is perfect for summer :-)
