I just finished this dress yesterday to wear to a Lolita meet up.
It came out exactly like I had pictured in my head! I draped and drafted the pattern completely from scratch. It was a little tricky figuring out how to sew the bodice with the collar and the halter at first, but I think I got it right.
I wore it all day yesterday and it was really comfortable.. the main fabric is 100% cotton and it’s lined with a 100% cotton voile, so it’s very breathable and perfect for summer.
