Sadie Dress for Shabby Apple Dresses

Here is my dress design for Shabby Apple Dresses...the Sadie Dress.

Fabric: breathable cotton knit/blend. Trendy floral pattern with solid color accents. Classy and Comfy

My inspiration for this dress comes from my girls and the struggle I have with finding a dress for my "lack of curves" :) I love the fabric that I chose for the tunics I designed for my girls (pic below). I wanted a dress that would be comfortable but very beautiful and flirty. I wanted something that I felt would flatter most, if not everyone's, body type. At the same time, I want to be able to feel comfortable carting around a toddler and infant (while still looking and feeling great). Finding a dress like that is a struggle for me, so that's why I came up with this.

Some features written on sketch (I didn't know how to enlarge it):
--sleeves just above elbow, flare out like a comfy tunic
--wide belt placed to define curves
--front detail with ruffles and buttons to create and show-off curves
--darkened areas of sketch are for solid color accents
--the neck is a boat/banana neck.
