I saw this dress on the website ASOS and wanted to wear it to a friends birthday party, however there wasn’t enough time for it to be shipped over. So I decided to make it instead! No pattern, I just used the outline of a similar stretchy dress, exculded one shoulder/strap and cut the two layers of ruffle out of a floral Chiffon fabric I had at home. It worked out much better than expected and looks just like the original! I have attached a picture of both my version and the original to show you the difference.
White stretch fabric
Ruffles cut from two large circles (of differing widths)
White Bias Binding to finish it off
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
