Description

dress made using burda pattern
from the vintage issue, of november of 1979.
original dress is a maxi dress, but i had only 1m of fabric
so i had to work with it
..
it’s one-size-fits-all kind of a dress
for the sizes 36-44
really easy, quick sew pattern
has only 3 pattern pieces
and elasitics at the waistline and in shoulder seams
to create this draping effect
..
used 70’s polyester knit for this dress
but i plan to make it again
as a maxi gown, and using some nicer fabric
..

Material Notes

1m black polyestr knit
1cm wide elastics for the waistline and shoulder

    Baš mi se dopada ova tvoja haljina! Uvek se oduševim kada vidim te super jednostavne krojeve koji odlično izgledaju, tim više što ja uglavnom nemam oko da prepoznam potencijal u njima :( Uvek odaberem nešto iz stotinu delova i još ga i dodatno iskomplikujem, pa posle redovno pravim mentalne zabeleške da to nije najpametnije. Sviđa mi se kako u poslednje vreme tvoj stil naginje ka minimalizmu!

      Inače, u poslednje vreme sam nabavila gomilu burdi iz ’70ih. Ima super dobrih krojeva ali nikako da se odvažim da probam nešto, nervira me što sve dolazi ugl. u jednoj veličini pa ne mogu da se odlučim. Takođe mi se čini da se veličine razlikuju od sadašnjih, jesi li ti možda primetila tako nešto?

      hvala.. da, tacno je da naginjem ka minimalizmu u poslednje vreme, i ka manje sarenim stvarima.. ova haljina mi se svidela jel nekako izgleda kao one grcke haljine sa vaza (bar ta originalna maxi haljina izgleda tako, ne i ova moja prepolovljena verzija).. ja volim da sijem po tim starim burdama, ali cesto su drukcije velicine, moras da sijes broj ili dva vece.. u onima sa pocetka ’70ih mi odgovara vel. 42 (u novima je to 38)..
