I started off using a pattern but ended up just winging it because I forgot that I hate patterns Smiley The top is a dark dreen linen material, fully lines. The back is shirred and the ties are actually just bias tape in dark purple to match the skirt portion of the dress. Ok on to the pics. Sorry for the crappy pic of me wearing it, I didnt have anyone to take it so I had to improvise...


Please excuse my paper craft/guitar hero storage in the background Smiley


The back


The front.

I was kinda forced to haha...the top ended up being too small so I added some fabric and since I have still yet to buy a zipper foot for my machine, I went with shirring instead.
