It was supposed to be a top

Okay, so this was supposed to be a v-neck tunic with a band around the waist and elbow-length sleeves. Then I realized I had enough for a dress so it became a dress. This one is a mock-wrap dress you pull over your head and it's not shapeless as it appears on the hanger, it conforms well to the body without being tight and I plan on adding some decoration but haven't found something I like yet.

Starting my summer sewing

But who are we kidding? I live in California so I can probably start wearing this in April with a cardie on top. This is from a paisley fabric I have way too much of, in a light grey background. This dress is pretty and floaty and shows off enough cleavage without being vulgar.
