Bring on the party, this dress is made for dancing! The half-circle skirt will float beautifully when twirling. The sleeveless bodice is semi-fitted, because like all my designs, it's made for growing! Layer up with a long-sleeved top or cardigan in winter, wear on its own in summer. The perfect all-year-round favourite dress!
