This dress is one of my many created from Burdastyle seamed dress 120. I have now made quite a few of these dresses and I change how I create them each time. For this version I combined the top two pieces for both the front and the back. Included the sleeves which is actually in the pattern. There are also two extra pleats in the top section.
The big change was the skirt, which I added about 10-15cm to the width and made it a pleated skirt instead of a slim fitting skirt. I also cut a large part from the bottom and made it black instead of one main piece.
I have blogged about this dress here
