prudence cocktail dress

Cleveland, Unite...






I modified the Malissa dress for the contest by eliminating the sleeves and the turtleneck, drafting a v-neckline, adding elastic casements under the bust, lowering the back, and adding crossed spaghetti straps.

Material Notes

green cotton fabric with a slight crinkle texture (from the thrift store!)
3/4" elastic
