Combining the JJ sloper and Marie skirt I made this dress, copying the idea of another member! The belt I made and made up myself, with a button covered in the same material as the belt. I love covered buttons. (and bows). I removed the back pleats of the skirt because I thought it wouldn’t look any good with the zipper, plus I already have a large behind and didn’t want to do the cul de paris style in polka dots ;-)
I know the second pic is no good but it accentuates the waistline better.
