Description

Here is my first sundress for summer this year! My dress is made from a sheer navy and white floral cotton gauze, lined in muslin for the top half and poly pongee for the skirt. I love the way it is so fun, flowing, and feminine, but cool in the heat while always looking classy. The neck ruffles can be worn two ways: flipped down like a regular halter or sticking up like a ruff. The pattern was great but I did go down a size and kept the proportions as “petite”. Visit my blog page to read more and see more pictures https://seamracer.wordpress.com/2015/07/16/retro-forward-burda-style-ruffled-halter-neck-sundress/. My Flickr “Seam Racer” page will have more pictures, too.
