DIY Duster

DIY Duster
My version of summer layering is this silk sheer duster perfectly relaxed in these super comfy trousers made earlier this year.  For the duster I used the bodice pieces to this Butterick pattern,  and the following alterations:

Twisted and gathered the front at an angle
Added two snap closures
Attached the skirt around the perimeter of the bodice and shaped with pleats

Pants- DIY
Heels- Manolo Blahnik
