Making this dress was the most fun I ever had sewing :-) (Mainly because it came close to the “vision” I had in mind :-) The construction is quite simple, I used a Burda pattern (Amour fou blouse) to make the top and added some ruffles running from the front to the back. I connected the skirt (basic tulip shape) to the top with a wide elastic band and left it visible in the front.
As soon as it gets warm enough I’ll wear it on a night out :-D
Soft denim, elastic band, interfacing
