I made this dress for my a friend of mine and I used the Zoe pattern as the base. The front has two small panels (yoke) at the top and I moved the dart to face the top and gathered it. Also, I added buttons. In the back I put elastic at the top because otherwise it was too baggy, and i also put ties at the waist! The skirt is gathered instead of the big pleat/fold thingy.
The pictures were when we were preparing for a play at school
