Hello everyone Smiley

             since the maxi dress I made at the end of last summer was such a success I decided that I needed a few more for this summer , here is My latest its so light and comfy I cant wait to wear it on hot days this summer .... the polka dot fabric is a lil thin so I lined it with super soft super sheer slip fabric so its still nice and light but provides Me a lil extra assurance that My undergarments wont be showing :)I also decided to do asymmetric straps one side has a thick polka dot strap and the other side has 2 thin black straps  ...Id love to hear what you guys think

with out belt

with belt

p.s. if you remember Im super short lol 4'11 so Im super psyched that I can pull off the maxi dress Smiley I never knew till last summer that a maxi could work on someone short as myself

It looks great!  I love the shape of it, and the fabric is awesome!

This is most attractive on you. The lines are great, the fabric is very nice, and it shows just enough skin for a beautiful woman. It has that classic look that can be worn to either a casual or dressed up occasion with just a change of accessories. This would be great for an awards banquet.  Smiley
