Vintage Style Pink Paisley Voile Tier Skirt Dress with draped sleeves

The weather forecast for day after tomorrow is an unusually warm 90 degrees and I can not wait to wear this dress! As usual the fabric determined the design of something floating with a bias cut. The basic Simplicity dress pattern skirt was lengthened by extending the under tier skirt. The entire bodice and sleeves were underlined with self fabric as the voile is very delicate and still drapes wonderfully with the double weight. The sleeves were lengthened and the elastic gathering eliminated in my design along with the belt.

Against strong sunlight I often notice the outline of a ladies legs and crotch through her skirt and am careful to always wear a slip or line garments to be modest and / or improve the drape of garments.
