I must have been in a super finicky mood about this silly dress as evidenced by the three separate shopping trips to find something I liked. I was looking for dressy, but not prom-my. I also wanted some stiffness for structure. I had no idea what color scheme I wanted.
I think this geometrical pattern will work nicely. In fact this was the only fabric I grabbed and walked around the store with on any of those fabric store excursions. I am not always a fan of red and black together. They are both so bold, but I think it works for the dress design. And, added bonus, I am already the proud owner of two pair of red heels, so I have shoe options at the outset.
In related news, I think July may be the last fancy dress for a while. "More Go-To Dresses!" is my new motto.
Starting in August.
(Maybe ending in August.)
