Description

I used a pattern for a dress with an empire-waist. But instead of working it with a zipper I let the back open and just close it with loops and a binding … so it’s a mix between dress and apron. A dress with a special backview. With another black dress or a black skirt and shirt underneath I wear it mostly when I go out in the evening for dinner or dancing tango. The project is more than two years old and I’m happy, that I still like and wear it.

Material Notes

violet cotton, brown cotton with little flowers, velvet bindings in brown and green

Intermediate
