This was fairly easy to make but took a bit of time, as I’m only a beginner. I didn’t change anything about the dress except for the sleeves, which I shortened. The fabric I bought a long, long time ago and never liked it but for this dress I absolutely love it and am glad I used it. But the fabric you either hate or love. I’ve gotten many comments like “Well, hmmm, you sewed it very well…” ;) I, however, love the fabric!!! My favourite dress at the moment!
