Knee length cocktail dress in white and red floral cotton.
Based on Pattern 5/2011 Dress with A-line Skirt #108A
The bodice is cut as in the pattern except for the back which has the circle cut, the zipper was lowered and I added a button at the top. I chose a simple half circle cut for the skirt instead of the one shown on the pattern.
