If I have seen this dress in a shop, I haven’t even look at it. Pink? Me… no way! :) Well, like it’s always with fabrics, I found this wonderful pink cotton-linen-mix fabric in denim optic and planed to sew pants for spring. I did sew the pants but had 2m of fabric left over. I remembered this retro pattern by Burda style and thought, this is a perfect combination: pink and retro.
Unfortunatly the pattern is just available at the "German Burda style homepage”:
In the last pic I’m wearing the dress as skirt.

Please visit my blog for more pics:
