I had said i wanted an Anda with a big skirt and a plain top after my last one.. BUT this turned out quite differently. I was looking for a new neckline, and found the “Heidi Variation Prom Dress”, and used that.
Then while it was long (below knee) everyone told me i looked silly, even though i thought it was cute! SO i gave in to shortening the skirt, but kept the skirt full rather than slimming it like last time.
I also used the bias strips as a trimming on the outer edge of neck/arms.
My other change was the elastic casing was moved to the inside of the dress, without tie bands. I quite like it :)
Checked cotton (gingham)
Purple pre-made bias tape
