This is a simple dress I made with the cap sleeve mini dress pattern that was featured last week. Because I am not the slimmest around, I cut the pattern bigger than it was, but way too big in the end. But instead of altering it to make it fit, I decided to keep it loose fitting as it was. I lowered the neckline in the back and the front and opted for an exposed zipper instead of an invisible one. I actually think the loose fit makes it look pretty cool and if I am in the mood for it, I could add a slim belt to add shape. I am quite happy with the dress, it was such an easy project!
Sorry for the low quality pictures!
