I was eyeing this dress from “Drape Drape 2” for a long time and at last I tried my hand at it. I didn’t have the pattern, but it was easy to make one from a picture of the pattern I found online. I traced the upper part from a top of mine and finished the neckline and armholes with bias made from the same fabric. I did a little gather at the cleavage as it was gaping a little, probably my true bias was not very true :) . Very light and easy to wear summer dress.
