I didn’t like the bodice of this dress (too baggy and bulky), so I replaced the bodice with a fitted self drafted one, and added macrame straps (made with strips of the same jersey as the bodice) for more fun.
I found inspiration for the macrame straps here: Macrame Racerback and here Macrame Back Bra.
I drafted the top part of the bodice following those instructions: How to make a contour bust top
