just got serious with sewing again after one full year! so focused on doing more of dress. :) . still polishing my skill!.

The front of the top part of the dress was cut wider than the back to accommodate the designs. the designs were made by making folds and sewing them. after which the folds were ironed out.
it also has a waist band made with the same material.
no linen was uses because the material is really thick!

(pardon me its my first time of describing a project, i hope to do better next time, plus i should have a detailed step by step instruction also)

Material Notes

cotton one and half yards
invisible zip
