Summer Chev Pop Dress for Sunny Days

Added Aug 18, 2013

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.

Are you loving it too?

    Beautiful colourful dress and shoes! I love chevron and the colour orange.

    Just curious. You’ve used the fabric upside down for the back when compared to the front and sleeves. Is there a reason behind it?

      Thanks Lobi..No particular reason just trying out the different angles of the frequency. It really came across nicely

    The colors in the fabric are so pretty …I love the dress … 3/4 sleeves rock. and reat idea to add the ties. I may just borrow that idea. Also loving the shoes.
