I sometimes get confuse on the placement of relative clause usage. Please advise me whether the below example sentences make any sense in grammatical point of view. The relative clause is highlighted in the bold.
Ex 1: I wore the dress which was presented for the last birthday for this birthday on 1st May -- Active voice
Ex 2: The dress which was presented for the last birthday was worn for this birthday on 1st May by me. -- Passive Voice
It would be greatly appreciated if you share some rules on the placement of relative clause usage.

In general, place the relative clause as close to its antecedent as possible. You have done this. However, the clause itself is not natural. Try;
I wore the dress that was given to me on my last birthday for my birthday on 1 May this year.
