The Long Sleeve Goddess Dress by Alice + Olivia
has ruching at the silk-chiffon draped panels throughout, which would look sloppy if done by a less skilled designer but just make this dress fabulous in this case.

Obviously this dress isn't for anyone who doesn't need to be widened as that's what horizontal stripes do, but if you can pull it off, the Pandora Dress by Ella Moss
is a fabulous dress. There is a cowl neck, sheer lace inset at the shoulder, and pleating at the hip. It is 32 inches long as well. Simple and sexy!

Lace is all the rage right now, and we especially like the Kitty Dress by Daughters of the Revolution
because it isn't your grandma's lace. This dress features a deep crossover V-neck, ruched shoulders, self-belt tie at the gathered elastic waist, surged hem and cuffs, and 3/4 length bell sleeves. It is extra short at 31 inches, lined at the body, and sheer at the sleeves.

The Ruched Mini Dress by Mara Hoffman
is quite a flattering dress with its ruching at the sides and shoulders. This dress also has a cowl neck, a contrast strap at the cowl back, and contrast banding at the shoulders and sides. The skirt is lined, it is 32 inches long, and the body is 100% silk. Also, from the picture it may be hard to see, but it is actually moss, not black.
