I made this dress in 8 hours the day before my brother’s graduation. I made up the design myself because I couldn’t find a pattern I liked. I draped it, made up a pattern for parts of it and used a pattern I got free in SEW magazine for the beginning of the sleeves and neck line… Although ended up completely changing them. The skirt is a simple drindl. Apologies for the below average photos. They were taken as part of the celebrations rather than specifically to display my new dress!
