LL Creates: Monkey dress




This dress took me both over a year and only a day to make. I had the fabric for quite a while but although I loved the color, I was afraid to use it as it can be understood wrongly (dressed monkey is generally considered quite racist). In the end I just went for it as it seemed a shame to waste such great colors and I am glad I did as no one except my boyfriend seemed in the slightest offended.

It is a lovely heavy summer dress that hangs very nicely. The strip at the front of the skirt sometimes gives the illusion of it being a pantsuit, which I find quite interesting.
