My first modern commission dress! It’s a knock-off of ModCloth’s ’Wing It On" Dress. I used Simplicity 2588 as the base, but heavily altered it in order to get the open back (which involved making a waistband for the dress) and made a gathered rather than pleated skirt. The fabric is cotton poplin and was specially printed by the client via Spoonflower.
