If you are more into modest fashion, this is right up your alley. We love the long dresses that fit the form perfectly. You could make variations to yours, add three-quarter sleeves, or not. Make it an A-shape or flared skirt (or not). Or you could add an uneven hem with a side slit. Whichever you choose, this is pure elegance.
