Description

I made this dress few years ago. I gained some weight from then, so it’s a bit tight now. The dress was inspired with Spain and Spanish culture (I planned my trip to Spain at the moment I sewn the dress). I drafted the pattern myself. The skirt part is constructed out of two rectangles that are gathered at top stitches.

Material Notes

White linen; White lining cloth; Red satin bands; White cotton lace band; Invisible zipper

    I love the apron style neck and its neatly constructed shape. The 4 different parts are sewing lessons in their own rights. It is a great idea to construct garments that way and it really suits you.

    “Shall we dance?” – I would say? And you look like Spanish too! It’s almost you would start dancing Salsa now :) I like it very much!

    I agree with nenasew, a how-to/pattern is definitely in order. :)
