I don’t know about you, but I thought the Maria Pinto turquoise dress that Michelle Obama wore during her Democratic National Convention speech was spectacular. It’s right up there with the gown Marilyn Monroe wore to since Happy Birthday to JFK. Just wow! Iconic…
A quick analysis shows us that it is a dolman sleeve empire sheath.
The front view with the wide V-neck and 3/4 sleeve is alluring and modest at the same time.
But the profile and back view, mama mia, this dress is pasted on!
Now Michelle Obama is no tiny little thing, she is not only statuesque, but full figured. It is amazing how wonderful she looks.
I have to go thru my vintage patterns and see what I have that comes close to this dress. I waaaahnt one!
