Mega-alterations ahead! You see, when I set my mind to following the pattern, I alter stuff. When I set my mind to alter stuff, it’s almost unrecognizable :)

The original plan what to lengthen the mini tank dress and add a sash to pinch at the waist. Hey, how ‘bout making the waist a knot with bunny ears! Oh wait, exposed zipper! Oh damn, side-boob is bad, let’s add panels on the sides and down the back!

So here you go.

My first ever contest entry here on burdastyle. It was fun! Good luck to everyone!

I’m struggling to find a name for this dress.. any ideas?
