Description

I based this dress on a Burdastyle pattern but I made a lot of alterations and additions. I changed the upper part of the dress by creating a sweetheart neckline and making it backless. On the back, I added straps that cross over, and there is a zipper at the center which has a hook and eye above it. I fully lined the dress with pink soft voile and I have used French seams for the vertical seams. I am very happy with my flowing summer dress.
