Can’t say it is a simple dress but it is surely worth making and any efforts will be awarded. The result is really good if you chose the right fabric, of course:-))
I like the outfit very much although made some modifications ( you can see them here) because of my figure.
I also made the bracelet and the earrings to complete the image.
The brightness of the fabric can improve mood on any bad day and the feminine wrap gives the feeling of full comfort what is so important on hot days:-)

Material Notes

I used viscose staple, it is thin, well-draping fabric and it is very pleasant to the body.

    Надзвичайно гарна сукня! Сподобалися складкі замість зборок. Мені здається, що так сукня виглядає елегантніше.

      Дякую… так вона більш універсальна, до того ж я борюся проти тих зборок все своє кравецьке життя:-) Можливо просто тому, що вони мені не пасують:-)

    This is so lovely. so much nicer than the version in the magazine.-a print like that can be tricky to handle but you’ve placed the print perfectly. Great colour too.

      Thank you for the detailed comment very mmuch. I like borders indeed. This fabric had them on the both sides so I put the details of the skirt to one edge and of the bodice – to the opposite. I had 2.5 metres and it was exactly enough.
