Description

I made this dress as an entry for the Tessuti Gridlock competition. The fabric was a requirement for the comp but you could make any garment. I started with BurdaStyle pattern 02/2011 Dress with gathered rectangle skirt and cap sleeves #101. I reduced the gathers, added pockets, changed bust darts to princess seams made singlet straps and keyhole back.

    Very nice variation, I like very much how you changed the shoulders and the back! This pattern is so versatile and every dress based on it looks one of a kind!
