This is my very first project!
I made it trying to copy a dress I once saw in a secondhand shop that was too damaged tu buy. It ended up not looking much like that dress, but it ain’t a fail either, it looks more vintage than the original one, haha.
I had no patterns neither did I have the dress I wanted to copy or anything similar, so I just started imagining, drawing and putting pieces together until I got something that kind of worked.
It took me some time and tries to figure out some things, but I think it’s an easy dress to make for us beginners :)
Pink polka dot viscose, pink satin lining, black elastic band on the inside of the waist, pink zipper on the back.
