Well, this is THE dress of the summer! This dress was all the rave back in February and March, but I think it has died down quite a bit since then. Nevermind though, it's still fabulous! The attention Elisa gets while wearing this in public is almost too much, haha! I've made several of these--a couple for Elisa, some sales, and a trade. I have to say this dress is BEAUTIFUL, but not the quickest to sew up. But I've done more tedious projects so its not too bad of a sewing project, respectively.
I love what everyone else loves about this dress: the neckline, the ruffles, and the chevron print (Remember zebra and damask and how crazy popular they were? Well, now its the chevron print!)
This definitely isn't a play dress (and never was meant to be) but it seems very comfortable. These dresses run at least $50 so I'm glad I can sew one up for my girly for much less than that! And this was one of the patterns I won in the giveaway, so that makes it even cheaper!
This dress takes a good chunk of time to make but it is sooo worth it!
