I followed Gertie’s creation to make this dress. It is a modified version of the Malissa dress, without the sleeves and with a neck tie and cummerbund style belt. Side note: if you are making the belt, make sure it can fit over some part of your body (either shoulders or hips) I have a narrow waist and wider hips, and it is impossible for me to get this dress on from the bottom up! Also, I didn’t sew down the belt as suggested.
