I made another shift green dress for myself with eyelet detailing and a ruffle bottom. It’s my new work/church dress. I love the texture of the fabric, so relaxing and hairy. I like to wear short shift dresses; I buy them a lot, they scream freedom of movement to me. They are extra comfi, airy and trendy in summer.
