This was my Thanksgiving dress. It's similar to the print in the inspiration photo, so I utilized one of my favorite tricks for making a dress more versatile - wearing it as a shirt! It works best when the dress is a thin material, and the skirt is a thick material, or if the skirt has a lot of volume or pleats. I put a thick pencil skirt over it, and finished it off with a tweed blazer, tights and boots for a chilly day. I like today's version even better than my original Thanksgiving Day look!
