Second dress using the pattern that was pinned on me by my sewing teacher.
I decided to have another go at it to fix the little flaws from my first dress and make it slightly more fitter (to counteract the fact that horizontal stripes make you look wider). Afterwards, I found it to be quite plain and simple so I added a bow onto it and a tiny bit of lace over the cleavage area and voila!
