Hi BurdaStylers, this mash up is one I have been wanting to do for a while and the end result is a dress totally my style (green and spandex!) and suitable for a night out on the town. I am proud of myself I must say, because this dress is all made up from scrap fabric even though I am still a bit sad that I used up the last of my fish scale spandex. Check out how I altered the paper pattern to have no waist seam and longer seams, and see how other BurdaStyle.com members made this Zipper Neck Dress their own.
