I should have posted this dress earlier. I just didn’t think I could photograph it, because I can’t put it on the dummy anymore (I pinned it on).
I made this dress completely without a pattern. I pinned the fabric to the shoulders of the dummy, then, using a piece of elastic as guide, I gathered it at the waist, under the bust and at regular intervals between those. The straps at the back (sorry, couldn’t photogragh them like this) are the only thing I put on seperately.
