This design came to me as I was drifting off to sleep - I had to get out of bed and sketch it so I wouldn't forget all the details! The shape is based on a girly bathing suit with a flouncy skirt. The angled stripes give the impression of bust and waist shaping. You can extend the length to make an Erquy dress and that is exactly what I am planning to do for myself!
