When I designed this dress, I wanted to let the fabric stand out. It is so lovely and full of vibrant energy. Hence, I choose to go with a simple, yet classic silhouette. The darts in the front and on the back accentuate the waist. The sleeves hit right above the elbows.
The fabric's pattern goes from darker to lighter - the top of the dress has the darker portion and right around the waist, the flower imprint gets less intense and slowly fades out towards the hem. I really like the visual interest this transition in the pattern gives to the dress and its shape.
