Red and Black Dolman Maxi Dress
At Easter I made myself a comfortable hi-low dolman maxi dress out of some lightweight jersey. I have LOVED wearing it all summer. It’s cute, flattering, cool (as in not hot, although I hope it is also cool in the other sense too) and most of all, so comfortable to wear! I never have to worry about flashing anyone anything or how my belly looks (ice cream, chocolate, and chips-it’s a love hate kinda thing). The fabric is breezy and flows so I feel like floating on the wind.
Okay, enough about that beautiful dress that I love. In anticipation of fall/winter and cold weather, I made a true Dolman Maxi dress from some super soft cotton/rayon/spandex.
My winter version of a Dolman Maxi Dress is actually floor length, has 3/4 length sleeves, and pockets. Yes, pockets. And yea for having enough material to make it long all the way around!
Now, I generally only wear dresses to church and to dinner with my husbands colleagues. But When I do wear dresses I hate having no where to put the few things I’m carrying. My purse is in no way appropriate for these settings (freebie with “State Farm” plastered across the front). So I appreciate having some pockets. Plus-it gives me something to do with my hands to make me feel less nervous. My husband likes to tease me that I have agoraphobia. It’s not true, but I did grow up slightly rural and I appreciate space.
And did I mention how soft this fabric is? It’s so comfortable! I plan to wear this all winter long and feel like a Greek Goddess-a warm one of course.
