I absolutely could not keep away from this beautiful brightly coloured chevron print chiffon fabric. I use a shift dress style from March 2010 as my inspiration and modified it to create the design that I want. The dress has a round neckline with a single pleat, keyhole opening at the back with a single button closure at nape. Three quarter length sleeves. I place two tie ends at the right side to give a little more style.
I use nylon for the underlining. The dress is very comfortable and very perfect for the hot sunny days.
I so love my new dress and it keeps me cool during the heat.
