I made this dress without a pattern. I simply took my measures (bust, waist, hips, length) and then I cut two black straps that I made into the waist for the skirt and the strap for the top. Afterwards, I cut three squares from the lighter fabric, two for the top (back and front part), and one for the skirt. I cut all the squares in a way that they were a bit wider than my measures so that I then gathered the fabric and attached it to the black straps. I lined the skirt so that it gained a bubble dress form.
I can wear this as a dress, or separately with other tops and bottoms.
Because I used jersey, the dress is very comfy and the fabric falls nicely.
