I used the celestina pattern for this dress. Lengthened the ties so that they could wrap around the front and shorted the sleeves to cap length. I still think this dress is a bit frumpy. But maybe still a bit cute at the same time? Because the fabric is the most beautiful Japanese cotton sateen that i have seen. The pictures really don’t do it justice.
