I based this dress on the dress with the cap sleeves and the rectangle skirt.
However, the bodice was a little too big for me, so I put in a few extra darts here and there to tweak it to fit. It turned out rather great I would say.
On the skirt, instead of just normal gathering, I box pleated the entire skirt.
I´ll add better pictures when I have more time.
I used a heavy cotton fabric that my mom had lying around.
