Cross Over Bodice Dress from May 2017 Burdastyle Magazine

I made this dress for my recent trip abroad.

I used Burdastyle pattern 5/2017 Dress #111 size 38.
(It was a little big on me with wide shoulders. If I make the dress for myself again, I will use size 36 and make the shoulders more narrow.) The dress is fully lined and the fabric is cotton modal. I love how cotton modal feels and drapes. However, it does not steam or press well.

Adjustments to the pattern:
1) Added length to the dress
2) Side Skirt Vents/Slits

I love this dress and highly recommend!
Also, I can make the dress more casual by adding a leather belt around the waist!
