Since I made this dress 2 years ago, it's been one of my favorite summer dresses. Let me refresh your memories with the construction detail.
I'm really not a floral print kinda girl. This is just something I really don't have an eye for... that is when it comes to fabric. Now I can look at a RTW garment and know instantly whether or not I'm in love with the print. But fabric? Not so much. I would have to see it made. So when I find a piece of floral fabric that I love -- I grab it! I haven't had much success this season. So I thought I'd "shop my closet".
What I've loved most about this dress is the built-in foundation. You might think boning should be reserved strictly for special dresses and eveningwear. But au contraire, it's perfect for a strapless sundress. And if you're making strapless sundresses and omitting the boning, you're missing out on a greater fit.
