I didn't have an entire pattern for the dress, I actually used a skirt pattern and then modeled the top part off a dress I already owned. That part was a little tricky but it was good to experience a different kind of pleating technique.
Also the belt, first time I've ever hammered in those snap in clips. The belt pattern I also got for free from Spotlight, they have pages in their stores about their free patterns and then you download the pattern off their website: http://www.spotlight.com.au/
