This dress is totes adorbs! The smocking on the waistband really defines the waist and the ruffles & flares on the skirt & sleeves really balance your figure...it really does make me look skinnier than I am. Great camouflaging dress! Easy care polyester so it won't shrink in the wash, but chiffon-y material so probably hang to dry. Which is a little high maintenance but worth it for the knockout look! Can't wait to wear this in the spring with some strappy sandals.
