Dress Design for Shabby Apple Dresses

Here is my dress design for Shabby Apple Dresses.
They are having a Dare to Design Dress Contest and here is what I submitted.

It has cap sleeves, a boatneck top, a v-neck back, side zipper and a circular skirt. Think twirling! I was inspired by the most current season of Mad Men, Audrey Hepburn, Blair Waldorf (from Gossip Girl) and Jackie Onassis - classic style, modest, yet poised and flirty in a subtle way. Ideally this dress would be made of a poppy color - an orangey-red - perfect for Spring time. I can envision it in a silk or a poplin - it can be dressier or more casual depending on the material. The sash would be either a detailed lace in a cream color or a solid cream for the waistband.

This dress would be perfect to wear to anything Southern and a baby shower, wedding shower, family reunion, Sunday church, a weekend brunch, jazz brunch in New Orleans, beignets at Cafe du Monde, a carriage ride in the French Quarter and boutique shopping stops along the way...that's why the color would have to pop!
