The Picnic Dress

Here's the technical:  This is cut from the same pattern as the lovely Anais Dress
that I did for Winter, 

only I have turned her into a faux-wrap style and shaped petals into her sleeve.  
She is in a printed silk chiffon, overdyed in a tea colour, and with a raw-edged hem.  
Wear her with Beth Ellery's underpinnings for decorum.  
If decorum is your thing.

Now here's the philosophical:  How to explain the phenomena of a sheer chiffon dress?  
Weightless, unconstricting, her sheerness is a relic of times when underpinnings gave you backbone.  
Now you have to hold yourself up, and what you select for underneath can clearly be seen, select wisely.  We can see your integrity or lack of it.  Are you wholesome?  Or insouciant?  Are you severe, or louche?  Are you cold?  Pop a cardi on.  We love you already for wearing our dress. Hope to see you at the picnic.
