This dress is made from another piece of a small drapery fabric that has patterned velvet mixed with jersey. This is a very simple design that I free handling made without a pattern. I try to balance out the jersey by placing it around the sleeves and making the collar out of it. Elastic is at the waist for shaping it underneath the bust. The front and back top is made from the patterned velvet fabric.
The dress is not perfect but I happy because it is completely wearable and it also motivates me to do my best next time.
Thanks for looking
