I made this dress to wear to the ball last week, I had one day and didn’t want to spend any money hence no zip and I used several co-ordinating fabrics. It was quite simple – large patched ‘tube’ gathered with covered elastic at the waist then the top half is a simple rectangle, darted slightly at the bust, neckline cut out and the sash tie makes the edge.
