this is no. 6 of my travel project and the second from Thailand. I was so happy with my first Thai dress that I was a bit anxious to start a project with the second bit of fabric. But then I realized I’ve always wanted to make a short version of the dots invasion dress, and that this fabric was going to be perfect for it. The fabric was (just like the other Thai piece) two toned, so I could make the contrast part in the top, unfortunately it wasn’t enough, so only the waistband is completely different. I lowered the decollete a bit and ruffled the entire bust piece instead of only the top part.
summer here I come :)
