Dresses are my clothing staple in the summer time and I'm always on the lookout for unique twists on the regular styles. The mixing and matching of the different patterns makes this dress a perfect addition to my dress collection. And since there are so many patterns going on, I kept the accessories to a minimum and in solid colours. I also didn't want my clutch to get lost among the patterns, so I opted for a solid vibrant colour that compliments the colours of the many patterns. The slits along the seams, makes it easy to move in this dress, and helps keep me cooler in the summer heat.
The only drawback is the short slip underneath the sheer long outer dress. As a taller woman, this is an issue I always encounter. I always have to be careful of how short hems are on dresses, even the slips underneath. Most time, I don't buy the dress, or I wear them with tights (like I posted about before). But since I love the pattern so much, I'm going to sew on an extension on the slip myself. DIY fashion!

P.s!: It's easy to lengthen (or shorten) hems on most dresses yourself. I've added bright colourful patterns to the bottoms of dresses, which look amazing! Under-slips are easy, and if you can't sew, it's the under-slip and no one will see your attempt. And if sewing is definitely out of the question, there are also "no sew" adhesives you can use or simply just visit your local seamstress.
