This simple design features a lovely white cotton print with metallic gold bows scattered along the fabric design that shimmer in the light. With a lovely scoop neckline, the bodice is set off by lovely princess seams accented with decorative top stitching for a hint of elegance.
The back of the bodice features a low v-neckline, in an attempt to accent the shoulder blades should the dress be worn without a blouse beneath it. In the back, an iridescent chiffon bow is stitched at the center and hangs past the waist.
The skirt is pleated at the waist, pressed into place about halfway down the dress, and then left to flare out at the bottom for a more dramatic feel stylized after 50s garment silhouettes. It is cut with more of an a-line shape which gives the look and feel of the garment something more classic in style, showing off about 2 plus yards of fabric. The skirt is also gathered at the side waist to give a bit more shape to the hips.
The skirt construction is made of strips of cotton carefully measured, cut, pressed, and sewn one by one to create sheer panels of organza stripes.
This dress is fully lined. All seams have been finished with either a French seam or Hong Kong bias, with additional serged edges. An invisible side zipper allows for easy on or off.
(Note: The pink you see peeking through is actually a petticoat. So depending on the type of petticoat you wear you could accent the sheer panels with a coordinating colorway.)
