The Mayla Dress is a fantastic dress with lots of ruffles. And who doesn’t love ruffles, they are so much fun!
The designer describes her Mayla Dress as perfect with so many fabrics – so many different looks… classic, boho, homespun, bright “fun in the sun”. You can sew it up in a fancy fabric for an elegant look, or go casual with a top like a denim jacket in the cooler months.
