The premiere Ann dress was created in vintage floral. Although future plans for this dress will be in a solid and prints; the original had to be in floral as the dress was inspired by my mother who makes a garden a tranquil masterpiece.
I also wasted 10 yards of fabric trying to figure out the construction of this dress. Did I mention that I am a trial-n-error seamstress. Self taught. But the end result was worth it. I love this dress.
The back is open with only 2 tiny buttons holding it together, however, I would put in more buttons for the customer to feel more comfortable.
