London, United K...
I took the Alexander blouse patterns and altered it into a dress! Changes including – adding a wedge to the outer sleeve so both the front and back are on grain, adding a pleated skirt, raising the waist seam by a few inches, turning the back buttoning into a zipper, and narrowing the facings. Oh, and I left off the peplum and belt on this version, too!

The fabric is from Ikea, called Josefin
Happily, it’s only £3.99/m and this dress used just about 2m!
