Description

This is a strapless dress with a faux peter pan collar kinda thing going on in front, three yellow buttons down the center of the bust, a waistband strap and gathered skirt that zips and ties in the back. I didn’t use a pattern, I just sketched it, measured myself and started cutting it out and sewing it together. the top is faced in the same fabric.

Material Notes

Green cotton with different color butterflies printed on it
