      I’m sorry but there is no ready made pattern for that dress. Bodice is made with a 11/2002 Burda pattern for a blouse, and skirt is a simple swing skirt.

    Kako sam propustila ovu haljinu? Prelepa je! Mnogo mi se dopada okovratnik, a crvena masna je savrsen detalj. Svaka cast! Ide pravo u medju moje omiljene kreacije :)

      For upper part of the dress I used Burda pattern for a blouse 11/2002 to which I added the collar.

      Hvala ti! Imam puno gotovih krojeva pa ih kombiniram prema potrebi, a ostatak napravim sama..kao kragnu u ovom slučaju.

    Neat idea to have the collar removable for washing. Nice way to preserve a beautiful dress. I love it (the dress that is ;) )!
