This sleek, drop-waist dress from BurdaStyle Sewing Vintage Modern, made in a silk charmeuse with an abstract print, evokes 1920s style. The cascade of ruffles adds playful elegance and the loose sash is a chic detail. This design is especially flattering on taller women, but those with a square build may appreciate its loose silhouette. Bring up the waist for a more formfitting look, or add extra layers of ruffles for more dramatic flair.
