I made this using the Elisalex Dress pattern from By Hand London with some alterations. Nothing huge, just lowered the front neckline and used a gathered skirt instead of the tulip skirt the pattern comes with. I also didn’t add sleeves to this. I wanted this to be an everyday summer dress so it is overall quite casual. The fabric is from Spotlight, when I was there to JUST get a zip.
