I tried to make a pattern out of a different dress (for the top), and I really should re-do the top because the bust area is a bit too small (notice the pattern? I think it was made before I was willing to admit I am larger breasted than I thought all these years..).
The skirt is a basicaly a gathered skirt.
I prefere wearing it with a belt, or it looks too maternal for my taste (though my mom likes it better that way. Wonder if she’s trying to tell me something).
I have no idea whatsoever what fabric I used here. It feels kinda Synthetic, it’s medium weight and has a great flow.
