A Dress a Day -10

I know this dress might not look like much at first glance but I think it could be quite special with the right fabric and lace.  I like the idea of two shoulder straps that you tie on top to make a cute bow that sits on your shoulder.  The above picture just illustrates the idea of the two straps.   The front bodice has stretchy shirring behind the ribbon corseting. 
I see this being a winter/fall dress with nice think fabric.  Perhaps a fabric with a texture to it like a light wool.  I think a print would be a good idea as well.  The lace that is along the hem and on the bodice would be nice if it was a woven or knit lace.  I see this dress having an antique feel to it.
