Today was promising to be in the 80's, so I grabbed this opportunity to debut my new dress!
You can not see it, but that is a giant butterfly in my hair. ;)
One of the things I noticed is that, even after only wearing it for ten minutes or so, it developed a crease at the waist line in the center front. There is actually no seam at the waist on that center front panel. I am attributing this to my tendancy to slouch. Bad Jenni! Must work on that posture. . .
I actually think this dress leans towards being on the frumpy side. A part of it is simply the fact that it gathers in by way of the sash/ties, but also, I had my typical narrow shoulders issue, and didn't adjust for it. Anyhow. Frumpy or not, it is so comfortable and cheerful, that I don't really think I care! ;) It's the perfect dress for capturing the excitement of spring having finally sprung. And, I already am enjoying its flexibility in regards to size, because this afternoon I was starting to feel a little puffy and uncomfortable, and I was able to loosen the ties a bit, and voila! Comfortable again.
I can see this dress getting a lot of wear this spring/summer!
