Reynolds is such a wonderful summer make because it’s loose without being too loose, it’s breezy while still feeling secure, and it looks great in so many different fabrics. Laurie chose a really pretty rayon crepe from Blackbird Fabrics for this Reynolds. She said the fabric was a bit tricky to cut straight but it was worth it because it is so light and drapey.

Laurie chose to make the longer view of Reynolds with the side slits. It has fabulous movement when she walks and it feels amazing in the summer heat.

One of Laurie’s favourite things about the Reynolds Dress is the wide straps! It makes it easier to style this dress and she feels comfortable and confident in it.
