Tartan and velvet dress

I bought this fabric without a plan for it, and it took a long time until it was finally used. First, it was supposed to be a peplum blouse, then a skirt and after that I though that maybe it was enough for a dress.
After decide for the dress, I was trying to use a pattern for the top part, I reduced the pattern and cut it, but it was too tight for this fabric without any stretch. Again, rethink the entire project and decided to add the middle part of the top and redesign it. This is the final result, and I really like it!

    The insert with the contrasting ruffle trim is a great idea to adjust what would have been a tight dress. A blessing in disguise, and you look amazing in this!
