aww thanks everyone
i'll try to wear it more often then, especially when it gets a bit warmer out.
i didn't use a pattern, i just traced a tank top that i liked for the top, cut it at the boobs & made it double layered because the fabric was quite sheer, added sleeves and then added a strip to the bottom to bring the length to my waist. then i just took all the fabric left and bunched it up around the strip and that was it. i didn't even hem the bottom, ha! here's a photo, rissarox:
& thanks for the tip, judethelost! i'm too scared to rip seams out because my machine makes tiny stitches and i might rip it all up, but i'll definitely be making a similar dress again
