This is another dress made with the Contour Bust Dress Pattern. I added a false placket with a ruffle around it as well as a ruffle around the top part of the bust piece before finishing it all off with self made bias tape. I also got fancy and added adjustable straps! I was going to use plain little blue buttons but once upon a time I got a bit impulsive and bought 400 buttons in one transaction. So it was time to bust some out on this dress.
