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)
