Basic, But Not So Basic Dress (Part 2: Drum Roll, Please)

Depending on which angle you are looking from, I love that my dress can look sexy, chic and classy. It's a fun surprise! From my original sketch, I've made some changes. The 3/4 sleeve is now a regular long sleeve and the gros grain color is mustard yellow. I decided that I didn't want to attach the gros grain belt to the dress, giving me multiple opportunities to wear the belt with other outfits. Aside from that, everything else remains the same.

Dress made out of Cotton/Silk. I fell in love with the texture.

This dress is hard to iron or I just suck haha
