This is my favorite. Of the five, I love this dress most. The fabric is a very luxe feeling rayon. The skirt is incredibly full and moves beautifully. And, the pockets are deep enough to plunge my hands into or safely hold my phone.
When I showed my mom the pictures of this dress, she told me I look tall. I like that.
The print reminds me of and makes me feel like a butterfly. And, when a girl in a shop stopped me to ask where I'd purchased my dress, my heart fluttered like one.
Simplicity 8701, maxi dress View 3, c. 1978. I wanted this dress to kiss the ground while I wore it, but I will likely bump my hem an inch to prevent any drag on the fabric during future use. And there will be future use. This dress is amazingly comfortable. I felt very glam wearing it. The sewing was simple and very straight-forward.
