I Believe I Can Fly.

The photograph-sepia, faded-April 17, 1915.

A big gala of dancing in celebration of her first solo performance on the Roman rings at Chicago Coliseum. She wore this dress, looking more demure than she really was.

I wonder how she decided what to wear that night?

I imagine this elegant poly chiffon fabric floated irresistibly over her toned legs as she danced. Maybe that was it. Perhaps it was the feminine trims and lace that complimented her dare and strength.

Lillian Leitzel, classically educated in Breslau and Berlin, had the talent and grooming to be a concert pianist. Her mother, part of a famous European aerial act, ensured other ideas carried the day (and her future). Lillian picked this dress for a reason.

I totallly adore this dress for a lady!
It floats. It speaks strongly in the gentle blue. The fabric works even at Christmas in NV and the lake and and and.... I felt perfect in this in every way. I believe I always will. THere is no place it cannot be worn in the world! (where there is peace). Sharon

Great dress
This is a great little dress. It is floaty and feminine and so comfortable and forgiving. One of the few times I can wear a cocktail/formal dress and feel just as comfortable as though I had on sweats, but looking pretty and girlie. I love this dress.

Great fit, hoping to get the other color.
I wear this one mostly in evenings outings but also during daytime. It is busy in the chest area so I dont wear any necklaces and dress it up or down by changing shoes earrings and purse. It is very flattering especially for me being size 18. Its light and comfortable. True to size. I have it in black and contemplating buying the blue one.
