New York, New Yo...
Many of us have nostalgia for the 70s, and this tiered Sunflower print dress fits right into that decade— but this pattern also has a lot of potential to be modern too, depending on how you style it. The fit is the best part, as the bodice is snug but the rest of the dress is roomy with gathered tiers for added drama. The racer back is also a welcome surprise. Go ahead— take a spin!
If you want to go all the way, try the floor-length Maxi Dress pattern. Alison picked up the sunflower printed cotton pictured above at Mood Fabrics.
