Description

This dress was created from a simple rectangled throw cardigan with sleeves. Regular size throw is converted into size 8 US dress.
I used Butterick pattern for the bodice, re-used the sleeves and cut color and the skirt as rectangles without a pattern.

      hi, hoaclin! thank you for your support! The flower was a decoration on designer sliper shoes i had – one got lost and i used another one as a decoration (added a safety pin as a holder).

    Your dress is gorgeous! Very clever to use the cardigan.
