Description

I made this dress using the new Elisalex Pattern from By Hand London with only a few changes. The pattern is a scoop neck, princess seam dress with a tulip pleated skirt and sleeves.

I didn’t have enough of the geometric print so I used some cotton sateen for the side panels and I think it looks cool.
