Description

I made this dress for my end of the year show at school. I made a mini collection, if you can call two garments a collection. I found 2 shades of beautiful, soft and subtle batik and I used for both dresses. This was the most lovely shade of pinkish rust. I was very excited to find the charcoal gray lace. Both dresses feature scallops, batik and lace, though I think they are quite different in attitude.

Pattern made by me.
