What a nice simple but cute looking summer dress for someone of all ages and you can use a pattern you have on hand for the bodice so you know it will fit right. I love that it is light and airy and love love the embroidery on the hem and the mom on the bottom and I like that you can click to her blog site for how to embroider it.If you want you can even use your machine and do one of your own. Nice tutorial and great sundress.

This dress is an instant classic. I can see women of all ages falling in love with this beauty!

I'm not a Mom, so I obviously wouldn't add the embroidery to the hemline, but I just love how light and simple this dress is. Also, I love the accent with the metallic belt. Great styling as usual from this blogger.
