When I first see this dress on h&m online shop I thought it was just nice, but after a year I’ve seen it on a girl and I really liked it. Of course I couldn’t buy it anymore, and I’ve spend 2 days searching for pictures with chiffon dresses from h&m until I found it, so I could use it for inspiration.
At that time I didn’t know how hard it is to work with chiffon. But I am glad I didn’t. So I just jumped into it. I’ve hemmed it 3 times, and it’s still not even. And it’s a lot shorter than I’ve initially designed it. But all in all, i like it very much. Although I am thinking that if I still find this chiffon to buy, I will remake the skirt part.
For the bodice I’ve used the mentioned pattern, but the skirt is a regular A line skirt.

Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
