I love how simple, elegant, and flattering this pattern is. While I feel uncomfortable wearing most maxi dresses unless it's to a high-end event, this one is just casual enough to work for any situation. Plus, the split between the t-shirt top and the skirt gives the waist just enough definition to give it an hourglass shape!
