It's Saturday! Sun is out, college football has arrived, you couldn't put a bigger smile on my face if you tried :) My dress for today had a mix of pleats and ruffles. I loved the print of the fabric too - I really liked the flowery business going on, but that ruffle at the bottom was trouble.
It was taking care of business time...got my seam ripper and began detaching the ruffle at the bottom.
The trim that I was left with could have made a bed skirt. We'll bring it back somewhere though, just wait.
So, before I was ready to wear this, I got out my machine and took it in. I brought in the sleeves and took in about three inches on each side.
Because the neck was collared and had a deep V, there were no buttons and after taking it in, it opened a bit more in front. Couldn't really get away with wearing it as it was, so I paired it with a black cami underneath and added a belt to break up the pattern a little.
Not completely the same but after scoping Anthropologie's site (like you do...) I found this dress that had similar aesthetics. The collar, the pleats, the V...
I was very happy with my outcome.
Perfect dress to enjoy the sun, the footy, and a little reflection this September 11th.
