This dress was inspired by one I saw Lindsay Lohan wearing in an issue of Marie Claire (2003?).
I didn't use a pattern; I just draped it on a dressform to achieve the body shape, added chiffon trim to the sleeve openings and bottom, and hand-sewed rhinestone trim and pearls (one by one!) around the sleeve openings.
