Description

I love this floral print!
I thought that the floral would be too monotonous for the whole dress, so I added a purple waistband and straps. I made inverted box pleats at the skirt to add more dimension. I did not use a pattern for my dress.

    I think you are right. The purple blocks do break up the print and makes it more interesting. You have done a great job.
