Notes Pattern: leila no. 8000, but the shoulder part I made out of multiple straps instead of fabric.
Alterations: so far I have lowered the waistline. I have not enough lining fabric for the round collar in the back so I had to change to a V collar in the back.
Fabric: extremely lightweight navy blue-white printed viscose fabric. With some backlight it is almost transparent so I have decided to line it with lightweight white cotton fabric.
I have slightly shortened the dress.
Invisible zipper in the back
I have decided to add the same strap as a detail on the bottom of the dress in order to give it some weight.

    This is really nice, the v-neckline in the back is an improvement and your strappy shoulders are lovely - well done!

    What a creative idea to use straps for the shoulder part. I like it!
