I created this dress from a Built by Wendy dress pattern. It is made from vintage material that I bought at a thrift store. I created a belt and added faux button closures to the neckline. On the sleeves, I added an extra layer of laced fabric. I made this dress over a year ago and finally am putting it on Burdastyle. I just posted a similar dress that I made for my sister as well under Sound of Music Dress.
