Breakfast at Tiffany's Trapeze Dress

This name came right to my mind when I imagined how this dress will look like. Dont get me wrong, I knew how the iconic black dress that Audrey wore looks like, but this would be something that Audrey would wear in that show! Its in my favourite shades of green and pink! I used a piece of vintage printed cotton for the collar. Another version of my trapeze dress from the previous one made of batik cloth.
