Description

Pretty darn proud of this one since I hand drafted the pattern off of a dress I had bought from Urban Outfitters. I really loved the style of the dress, simple with a see through bodice, but I didn’t want to wear black to my graduation. Luckily, I found this lovely print from none other than wally world for just 1.50 a yard (yes the fabric is kinda poopy but I adore the print). Really pleased with the way it turned out!

Material Notes

On a side note I used a slip I found at the thrift store to line the dress. Additionally I cut the dress bodice on the bias so it would have some stretch to it since I didn’t use a zipper.
