a new dress style i’ve been working on lately.  this one is for the fall collection later in september.  the print is really dreamy and the body of the dress is lined in silk.  the sleeves are very full and long.  the wide elastic sits just below the natural waist and billows over a little, the length finishing above the knee.  the effect is slightly slouchy, relaxed and very feminine.  there are side seam pockets and a gathered raw edged neckline that ties a little to the side.  i wish i had a picture of the dress on a model because it really does come to life when worn.  what i like about this style and what i was trying to achieve is something that gives one a waist without really drawing attention to it. i’d love to wear this dress with grey tights and my brown leather brogues.  kind of jan brady meets mina perhonen.
