Description

I made this dress earlier this year. I made the underdress from some purple wool gauze left over from a cape my mom made and used some sheer purple fabric as an overlay. The waist has 8 big pleats that make it nice and flowy! :) I love the fit of this dress, I think it’s a very flattering shape.

Material Notes

The underdress is wool gauze and the overdress is a sheer purple fabric with black roses on it.
