Angie is right - leave no retail stone unturned! As you may remember I am building the Dance Capsule for our new hobby - ballroom dancing. I have been searching for suitable dresses and skirts in the available Canadian sources without success...
..and then last weekend I ventured into Winners and just for fun decided to look at the dress rack. Ans see what I found! This dress has the perfect skirt for dancing and stripe pattern makes it even better in motion.
The fabric is knit so it is on the casual side but it should work for summer. The knit is lightweight but substantial enough so no VPL - another bonus! because it is lightweight it is the perfect weight for dancing because it is not hot. And did I mention that the price was the whooping $25?!
I wore it to the social dance tonight and got a compliment on it already :-) The only issue is that armholes are too low cut for me but I am going to take in the shoulder straps a bit to fix this.
Just felt like sharing this tonight - thanks for looking and have a great weekend!
