I used froggypondd’s Tulip Lover’s Dress pattern to make this dress. Because my fabric wasn’t see-through and I still wanted to have visible layer, I sewed two pieces of fabric at different lengths on the inside to make the bottom two layers. The fabric I used is actually part of a sari which is more detailed on one end. I used this part to make the shortest layer at the front of the dress and cut a scalloped hem.
For now I used a narrow length of the same fabric to make the straps because I couldn’t decide on what colour I wanted. I’ll probably use a green or orange trim/ribbon.
You could wear it by itself or with a belt to create a different silhouette
