Showing off my new shoes - kind of look like a Christmas elf
If you don't like flashing your assets then I'd suggest you raise the neck split an inch or so. I forgot to raise mine but I'm not too woried, the interfacing in the neck facing stops the neckline from falling open so I don't feel too exposed. Am I making sense?
This is view B, I cut a 14 and used a beautiful linen from Tessuti Fabrics. This went together really quickly, probably because I left off the neckline applique piece, the hem tuck and the back zip. I basted the back closed to check the fit, but with the neckline split I found that there was no need for the zip. I don't plan on wearing this number to work so I hemmed it a little higher than I normally would.
Side view - not too maternity like
The most unflattering back view possible
I've got to say that after wearing this dress all day I'm really impressed. It's been cool and comfy and I haven't felt my movement restricted at all. And hubby loves it - that neckline's going to get me in all sorts of trouble ;)
