On first glance, nothing about this dress really shouts "I love the U.S.A!" It just looks like a sweet and simple striped summer dress. And it is.
But if you look a little closer, you'll see that I stitched the hem in red! Now we've got red, white and blue...
Oh yeah, and the zipper is red too!
It gives this conservative little dress a little bit of an edge, no? I love how this turned out, and just in time to celebrate our nation's birthday!
