Maxi dresses are some of my favorite things to wear, especially in the summer. For this maxi dress, I wanted the top to be fairly loose, with a bit of a dolmon sleeve. I didn't want to make it too fussy with an inset sleeve, so the dolman style top worked perfectly for the look I was trying to achieve. I made the elastic waistband hit right at the natural waist, so that it cinches in at the smallest part of your waist to keep it from getting lost in all that loose fabric.
I've dressed this skirt up with heels, but I prefer to wear it more casual with flats (I have been living in these, such a great price!) and a cross body bag (I think it helps tone down the pattern a bit).
