For once, I love both the fabric they chose and the way they styled this dress. It might be because I'm desperatly wishing for the weather to get warmer and to be able to go to the seaside, but I love this little dress. I'm very curious about the construction, because I don't really understand how the gathering under the bust is created.
I don't see myself wearing this dress soon, especially with the plonging neckline and the virtual impossibility to wear a bra, but it's really gorgeous. I hope the magazine will feature a better photo, that shows how the back looks, and I'd be very curious to see this on a girl skinnier than me... I bet it's stunning.
I'm afraid this pattern isn't that unique and that a very similar one appeared in the magazine in the last few years, but I adore the color choice. Those two little pockets are so cute! I would definitely try it on if I saw it in a store.
Finally, the designer pattern (
It's a pity that where I live finding someone that pleats fabric permanently is almost impossible and very expensive (is it the same where you live?).
Still, what a beautiful dress!
