Description

I saw a beautiful black and white vintage dressand somehow got inspired to make this dress. I made the pattern myself using a basic dress pattern as a rough guide.
The center piece is silk and the brown fabric satin. The dress has adjustable straps and shirring in the back.

    The way you’ve used your fabric (the centre section) is really interesting and beautiful and well done making the pattern yourself.
