Like a million dresses in one !! lol
This is a dress which you can change the style of .It's based off the Le Sac dress from American Apparel which I have seen people make on Burda Styles. Photos were taken in my bathroom because it's the only place in the house with a long mirror. :P .

Oh, excellent! I rarely wear dresses, but when I have to it's always the same relatives, so this is great for me. One easy-to-make dress that I can wear a million different ways. *Sigh* Problem solved. =)
