Here it is! The dress I've been working on all week.
I found this dress on Piperlime.com and thought it looked simple enough to replicate with the right pattern. So if you haven't noticed already it's the same free pattern from Burdastyle that I made my last dress with. I added a false placket with a ruffle around it as well as a ruffle around the top part of the bust piece before finishing it all off with self made bias tape. I also got fancy and added adjustable straps! I was going to use plain little blue buttons but once upon a time I got a bit impulsive and bought 400 buttons in one transaction. So it was time to bust some out on this dress.
I had a bit of a photo opportunity against this awesome artwork that just happens to be in a little sidestreet in my suburb. It's by an Aussie artist called Beastman who has some great murals you should check out.
Apart from a bit of trouble with the zipper and sewing the placket on wonky (did you notice??) I'm pretty happy with how it turned out!
