This is a dress from WAY back in the day! As you can see I made it back in the summer of 06/07... it's when I really got into sewing, as a creative relief from the issues with moving to a new town, knowing hardly anyone and having a crap job! (That said, it was an awesome summer in other ways...) Anyway it was made vaguely off my oldest vintage pattern... mostly just the waist and the gathers, then i freestyled the rest.
A couple of years later I pulled it out, took off the tiny straps (hate them) and added nice thick tie halter straps, and shortened it to a decent length. Voila!
