Long black maxi with a side zip! I have used four whole yards of the black paisley on the bottom.The bodice has decorative stitching on the edges that continues up around to the back of the dress. The pattern called for thin spagetti straps,but I changed them to straps that could better hold the wieght of the dress. I also shortened the ruffel on the very bottom of the dress as the dress is now it just barely clears the floor on me.
1/4 yard plain black cotton blend, 4 yards black paisley cotton blend, 12" zipper
