Point Princess Dress
Wonderful account, Kat! This would be a practical dress for many reasons. The front opening bodice and separate skirt would be easy to put on, but would look like a single ensemble. I suspect if that 2" were eased in or tucked somehow, you would have a graceful slump. A dress that is in fashion but not high fashion.
Great article! I will have to make my way down to Madison one of these days to check out the collection. I only live 45 minutes away smile
