PATTERN: Hacked Sew Over It Doris Dress bodice 

FABRIC: Les Fleurs Rayon by Rifle Paper Co.

Since this fabric arrived I always thought it had a Nineties maxi vibe to it. After lots hunting around for patterns and inspiration I decided to use the bodice from the SOI Doris Dress which I crudely lengthened. My original idea was to have the dress buttoned down the front, but once cut, I preferred the casual style of the wrap front - that and the idea of  avoiding 18 button holes!
