Comfy doesn't have to mean schlumpy
I love to wear dresses in the summer. Dresses are just so comfortable, and just like Helen Mirren, I've never really understood why shorts are such a staple. Dresses are so much more flattering to most people.
I love this style dress -- empire waist means no cutting in at the waist, and the full skirt gives lots of room for movement. Two pockets gives lots of room for carrying keys, gardening gloves, or what have you. I'd make the neckline a bit lower, just because the neckline shown would be kind of binding for me, but that's about the only change I'd make.
Besides making it in a different fabric for every day of the week.
