This is just beautiful ! The bold print & how you placed it really works well here & has inspired me to try one of them.

What a happy dress! The style and fabric are both beautiful. I agree with you that a bare back is much more alluring than a low cut bodice. I hope you're enjpying Milan.

Thanks, everyone! I hope to try my hand at more ambitious projects; but it is a great feeling to be able to put together something so satisfying in a short time. @prostheticsgirl: I have seen vendors on Etsy and eBay selling African wax print fabrics, so you could start there. and also have some stock, but it shouldn't be hard to find. The hard part is choosing - there are so many designs it can get dizzying! Many claim the best ones are made in the Netherlands, and they can be purchased directly from the manufacturer at
