I kind of fell in love with this taffeta at the fabric store. Honestly, the lighting in my apartment is really bad - it's even brighter in real life. It's got a kind of abstract animal print thing going on, which is not usually to my taste, but the colors just jumped out at me.
Since the print was so bold, I kept the shape really simple - it's basically just a tank dress with elastic waist and a button closure in the back. And pockets, obviously pockets!
I thought it would be a fun dress for the summer that could be easily dressed up or down. I finished it this past weekend, when I wasn't organically divesting my parents' lawn of dandelions. I forgot to take any in-progress pictures though, as usual.

I can't help feeling like it needs something, though. A belt, maybe? It's obviously pretty busy already, but somehow it seems like it needs a little more oomph. Any suggestions?
