This dress is a birthday present, for my best friend Andreea, the girl in the pictures.Her birthday is in february, but I wanted to make it perfect, so I had to fit it on her. She knew anyway that my gift would be a dress. I think blue is a great color for her:)
I modified a standard bodice pattern to include the pleats, constructed a new pattern for the sleves, and the rest of it is done patternless. It has a long metallic zipper at the back-didn’t photographed that part, but I asked her for some picrtures with the back, as we forgot.
Cool greys transition from summer to fall in a shirt dress, flowing maxi skirt, and new jackets.
