Los Angeles, Cal...
You can never have too many summer dresses, so I made this one by altering Built By Wendy #3835. The original dress had raglan sleeves, so by omitting them, I got this pretty halter neck! I also really love the obi belts I’ve been seeing here on Burdastyle (especially the ones by lalalalayla) so I made a matching one for this dress. Purple and green is one of my fave color combinations, so I was glad to find the same print in both colors. Very happy with the end result!
