Sleeper Style Dress

A Word of Caution I feel the need to start by saying this will not be an organized tutorial. I already made the dress and didn’t film any of the process so I am doing it after the fact. But I’ve had so many requests for a tutorial I felt the need to try and type out my process for how I did it. What I will do is link all the…
