This dress was based on a Vogue pattern and it definitely had some ups and downs. The pattern didnt quite work as well as I would have liked but after spending the morning making the dress I decided to spend the afternoon fixing it.
After a lot of unpicking and resewing I think it turned out okay. Perfect for summer its a really light polyester fabric and has some really cute features including front pleated top and pleated skirt. Elastic back and small capped sleeves.
I guess it turned out okay and was worth the trouble.

Take off with pleats, cut-outs, insets, and futuristic prints.
