This dress will make you do naughty things. That is a fact. Without warning you will find yourself draped over the bonnet of a baby blue hot rod slowly licking whipped cream off your fingers. Don’t worry, it’s not you, it’s the dress.
Moving on…The cut is inspired by a design I saw by Stop Staring. Their design was a slightly shiny black fabric but I decided on candy pink stretch denim. It is midi length with a sweetheart neckline and cap sleeves. The centre front bust section is ruched and it has a waist seam to draw attention to the natural waistline. There is a box pleated section from above the knee to the hem to allow ease of movement when walking. It is lined in oyster satin so when you put it on it feels like it is being poured over your head.
Note to all red heads out there: You look super hot in bright pink!
