Yip, another remake. In its previous life this dress was an XX…L princess-seamed dress with short sleeves and I thought I might as well leave the same silhouette (more or less). There was an ample amount of fabric but I preferred something knee-length. For the upper part I used Dixie DIY’s Loose Fit Knit Top and the rest is just a flowy mass of fabric. The bow-tie strip of fabric around the neck is actually an ex-belt of the old dress… Oh well, I like it it when there are few leftovers :)
