Customized vintage

Yay, finally a new outfit! These photo's kind of have a double usage. They're meant for my portfolio, since I'm trying to get into an art/fashion school and they're for a new outfit post.
Perhaps there is someone who can recognize this dress. The pattern at least. I got it about 2 years ago with the intention to customize it, but I never got around to do it. It was such a granny dress. Now at the beginning of this year I decided to start on it. After some brainstorming I knew what I wanted to do with it. Plus I'm so in love with the back of it right now!
If you want to see the dress how it was, you can see it at the end of this post.

I'm wearing a Topshop blazer and hat, Dahlia necklace, ChloƩ bag and Asos booties.
And to make one thing clear, I only wore this without tights because I wanted to show the dress. Afterwards the tights went on!
