Such a pretty dress, elegant looking and so versatile too. Even though we are firmly in winter herein South Africa I started making my dress today, lol! I am not crazy about the way the back of the dress looks around the bum area in the photos so I am changing mine so that it does not look quite so saggy. The rest of it is beautiful and so far it has been really easy to make.
