I made this dress to go to a friend’s wedding. I wanted something a bit different, hence the contrasting pieces hanging from the shoulders.
It was based on a basic shift dress, I just didn’t sew the darts in.
The most important thing I learnt from sewing this dress is to not iron bias binding once it is sewn on.
