Originally it was just an uninspired button up short dress in another tropical print reminiscent of a cruise wear collection ick ick ick .
I chopped off the collar and sleeves (one day I'm going to show you I can work with sleeves too y'know) took it in, carried on the bust darts all the way to the top to make it a princess line bodice. I used the sash to make the straps, bias taped the top and made a faux waistband just using baby rick rack, I also made a faux collar by adding rick rack in a collar shape the neckline. I think this turned out even cuter than I originally planned.
Excuse the very dodgy photo of me, it's a sad day when I have to rely on my hubby to take a photo of me but the dress form is too busty for this dress. It's the only photo where Noah wasn't trying to look up my dress, charming hey!
