From Making No. 9 / SIMPLE:

This design was inspired by simple summer daydreaming, by vivid memories of long, hot summer days, by the romantic narrative of dancing in a field of wildflowers and by the second film of my all-time favorite trilogy, Before Midnight. The Halfmoon Strand dress has a slight 70s vibe, but with clean modern lines. It can be a dress, or a top, which can be worn loose or tucked into a skirt or hight waist cutt-offs. The dress features in-seam pockets and a drawstring, allowing you to easily adjust the fit and feel of the dress at any point in the day.

Recommended Fabrics: Lightweight woven fabrics with an element of drape, such as cotton, lawn, double gauze, linen, silk, etc.
