Description

I used the Burdastyle 11/2012 dress pattern #138.
This is actually for me. The fit of the pattern is gorgeous, I made some changes and adjustments on the waist, also instead of frontal pannels I joined both pattens and made them one, only added a deep dart for shaping it
I used a very thick coated jersey in rusty red

Material Notes

1,5 jersey
