This is a basic a-line shift / dress that I’ve fully lined and added a row of tucking / ruffles such that it crosses in the back. I spend a lot of time at the post office, and I realized that most people see me from behind. I’m not that fond of my posterior, so I decided I needed a way to draw their eye UPWARD!
Hence, the Watch Me Walk Away Dress … go ahead, look all you want!
I prefer 100% cotton for this dress, but it does require ironing. sorry!
