Description

I made this dress a few months ago. It has a detachable halterneck shoulder-strap and the skirt part is balloon type. There’s also a lining, which is made of thin orange cotton (at first it was white but I dyed it). I had some patterns for the bodice but I had to alter them quite a lot.

Material Notes

The dress is 100% cotton. The flower fabric and the buttons are thrifted.

    This dress is adorable! The color looks really nice on you, too. I think I might have to make my own now…

    Great dress! That fabric is just perfect for the style of the dress and you played with the pattern on the fabric so well. What a work of art!
