North Sydney, Au...
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.
