This dress is made without pattern, it’s simply smaller rectangles for bodice and bigger ones for the skirt. I sewed a row of ruffles on top of the bodice and also two pairs of loops so I can put detachable straps on it. The back of the bodice has several rows of shirrings to ensure the fit, and the front has four different buttons.
I can always wear the dress as a tube dress, but I prefer wearing it with these brown straps that I already have. Believe me, if you have an active first-grader boy around, a strapless dress is not a wise choice.
Lovely double-gauze cotton fabric called Girly & Bitter, designed by Asuka for Nina’s sewing factory. It has got birds, buttons, scissors, bunnies, stars, candies, mushrooms, girls, basically every pretty things on it.
