    I love the simplicity of this dress… It has a great feminine and classic sillouhette but looks like it wouldn’t take months to finish it. How did you construct the top? Is it more of a tube, or did you use darts to shape it?

      thank you ! the fabric isn’t stretch, so I constructed it in 6 parts, based on a bustier pattern I had. If you look closely you can see the seams where the pattern is broken ;)
