Summer Dresses

The black on white print of this dress is made from a soft creased cotton. It features a flattering V neckline with elastic to the underbust and a contrasting black band which extendes and ties at the front. As the fabric is quite light I have lined it in muslin rather than polyester so that it would not be to heavy in hot weather, this dress is made to fit a size 24UK. Do you like the contrasting black band and belt or do you feel I should have kept the line simple and made the band and belt in the same fabric  of the body of the dress, love to hear your thoughts.

This one is very pretty as well...but I still love the one behind it better!

I like both dresses, but the darker one better. I like the contrast of the black belt with the white fabric background. Nice job!

love the black band I'm all about the contrast to help give a jumping off point for accessories!

I too like the darker dress a lot more. Though the lighter one might be great for summers. The black band definitely helps. great design!

What a great idea to line it in a cooler fabric. I'd love if you'd link some of your creations with Fabric Fun Thursday. (I could personally use some of these patterns and ideas.)

Another lovely dress. I do like the black belt with it, this is so stylish.

I can imagine a black necklace with it, and that would be the outfit of the summer :D
