Extended Style Notes

American Rag Maxi Dress – Size S

What I loved...

  • Smocked waistband - The best feature of this maxi dress is hands down the smocking below the bust. Since this dress is not a petite size it was a little long on me. So I decided to roll the extra fabric up underneath the smocked waistbands that way it wouldn't drag on the ground.
  • Crochet - I love this detail along the bust of this maxi dress because I have really been into the boho look recently.

What could be better...

  • Slightly see-through fabric - I didn't realize until trying this dress on at home that the fabric is kind of on the thin side. So just wear that nude underwear or a slip ;) But it's a nice weight for hot summer days

 

Garment measurements:

Center front = 49''

Bust (elastic) = 28''

Waist (elastic) = 26''

Center back = 49.25''
