This is my first ever (made) dress!
I made this dress from a pattern in a 1960s Burda magazine. The dress in the pattern had multi-coloured ribbons in the waist which I omitted. I used a soft, light wool as I wanted to wear it on 17th May and it’s usually still pretty cold here at that time of spring.
