Blue Dress

I made this dress awhile ago but I haven't had a chance to wear it. I wrote about construction here.I got really impatient and just wore it to get chicken wings.I didn't wear any accessories in an attempt to keep it casual. It's a simple knit dress it feels like a tee but it reads as fancy because of the metallic fabric.
I feel like the jean jacket makes it casual. My friend's little sister asked why I was so dressed up. She's not used to seeing me in makeup.

The only thing that bothers me about the dress is the top. The fabric I used for the facing is the same I used for lining. And it is just too heavy for a facing so it kind of flares out. It makes my chest look wider than it is. I don't think it will stop me from wearing the dress.
