I used a Vogue pattern for the top of this dress, then came up with the rest myself. The band on the bottom is the wrong side of the fabric, which i added for a little shape (if possible on this type of dress!) and contrast. Looks like a sack on the mannequin but great on!
Linen-like fabric with sheen.
Vogue v8380 for top, me for the rest.
4 weekly drawings, including a Grand Prize valued at more than $4,000!
