I made this dress since I wanted a comfortable, warm and stylish dress.
The bodice pattern is based to two different top patterns from Ottobre. The skirt I improvised. I learned that you should not have a pleat like that in a skirt at center back, since it makes my behind look huge!
But I like it anyway and will probably wear it alot.
