Description

You can’t tell by looking at this – but my dress is based on a wedding dress pattern. I omitted the sleeves (because I didn’t have enough fabric), changed the neckline a bit, added collar, exposed zipper and pockets – and there you have it. Unfortunately it’s a little to big for me.

    Love the mint against the grey, the colour really ‘pops’

      I agree. The dress itself is very simple and the collar and zipper adds a little fun to the dress.
