Waist, Not; Want, Yes!
Some of the dresses have pretty embroidery and sequin embellishments around the neck and hem (tastefully boho, I promise), some simply rely on their gorgeous prints for impact.
But what these lovely garments all lack is a waist.
Truly, I'd be happy with a hint of shape, a cut that follows one's contours instead of draping like a tent; a set-in waist, empire or true, is not necessary.
Perhaps one could add a belt to the beautiful tents, but that defeats the ease of a dress for me, and also can result in a puffy silhouette.
I am thinking out loud that a niche needs to be filled. I now have dreams of producing a line of summery dresses that do not conceal a woman's shape in those perfect Indian cottons.
I'll do it right after I direct my Jane Eyredale film.
