I made this dress in april, and it is truly great for spring. It is warm, elegant yet casual enough to wear on daily basis. I definately wear it a lot and impress people with the fact it is self-made (although you ca see it is rather simple to make). I think it is just a nice addition to my closet. The bodice is (again) Simplicity 2444. Oh, and it was very windy on the day we were taking pictures, so it may look a bit strange. Name is taken from X-men Storm, for the colours of the dress.
