    What a fun dress – I really like the kimono belt. It gives your already pretty dress some really cool color!

    Thanks! I used a pattern of a 70’s very classic dress that I transformed. I made changes to the shape of the back and I made the skirt much more wide. Also I aded the belt and triangle at the bottom of the skirt. It is only the second clothe I made and it really made me want to make more and more!
