Added May 15, 2011
I used the burdastyle pattern "02/2011 Dress with gathered rectangle skirt and cap sleeves " and made it smaller to fit me. I also made the zipper in the back instead of the side, and added a heart shaped cut-out at the back, and also a lace trim underskirt.
Next time I use this pattern I will use a different color though. This grey cotton is hard to pair with stuff and can look boring and old fashioned (in a bad way :) I usually like old fashioned but it just looks a little boring).
