I made this dress quite some time ago and it is one of the dresses I wear the most at the time being. It is so “easy” to wear and it can be toned down with a black pair of tights or be made more vivid with some coloured tights, necklaces and shoes.
The dress is reconstructed from a size XXL dress I got from a friend of my mother and it is loosely based on the ‘almost Pollini dress’ pattern. I made some alterations to the neckline and sleeves and just used a simple rectangle for the skirt.
