So let me start off by describing the dress. If you look closely at the pictures below you will see that it is a swiss dot-like material.
The top is pintucked with tiny cap sleeves. Peaking out around the neckline are white fabric covered buttons and white button loops. Also, matching yellow lace lines the v-neck front and is echoed in the underskirt peaking out at the bottom.
The bodice is pulled together by a removable creased sash with white piping lining the outside. It ties together in the back and falls down to the bottom of the skirt line.
I designed the sash to taper off at the sides and be widest in the middle to flatter the figure best.
The underskirt is made of tulle so that the skirt opens up into a generous A-line and as I mentioned earlier has a lace lining peaking out at the bottom.
I was inspired one day while watching the food network. Huh? That’s right, specifically Giada’s at Home and her limoncello recipe. Everytime I watch her show and see her fabulous springtime recipes and Italian getaways it feels sunny and warm regardless of what season it may be.
Her description of limoncello made me water at the mouth. And what’s more spring than gathering outdoors on a warm evening with your friends and enjoying dinner and lemon drinks? Obviously the choice of dress color was born from the inspiration of her lemon drink recipe.
I wanted this dress to be a perfect choice for a fancy lunch with friends or picnic with your husband.
