Aside from that, I'm really happy with the dress. It can be belted, or paired with blouse in cooler weather. I think it's a flexible garment, and comfortable to wear. I like the large box pleats at the hem, although I do admit seeing a little "couchi-ness" there.
What do you think?
I will definitely make this dress again...
I used a black and white chiffon from JoAnn's and lined it with black. I wanted to use white, so the print would "pop", but it was still see-through. I know... I should've underlined it in white, and lined it in black. Anyhow, it's nearly weightless, has a fitted waistband and bias-cut A-line skirt. It is very flattering, and the neckline is comfortable, the fit and the cut. Next project: a black shantung short sleeve jacket to go with it!
p.s. It's hard to see, but the neckline has a keyhole. Here is a close-up of the front, and a view of the back.
