I used Dress 8 from one of my one of my japanese sewing books – Mama girl wardrobe (ISBN978-4-8347-2756-2)- as the base. But i changed up the pattern quite a bit. Here’s what i did: divided the bodice from the skirt panel at the low waist, cut the skirt part on the bias, raised the neckline and slimmed down the sleeve significantly. I also cut the tiers on the bias and left them and the bottom hem raw edged but sewed a stay stitch for stability.
At last, i stitched on the lace on the back – as an eye catcher.
