The Mississippi Avenue Dress or Top has a feminine, flattering and easy style. As a sleeveless style, it lends itself to spring and summer dressing however, it makes a great transition piece when paired with a cardigan, tights and boots. It can have a vintage look when sewn in a fabric such as rayon challis or something with some drape to it. It can have a more modern look when sewn in a crisp linen or cotton. Any way you fashion it, it's a great style.
