Description

I used two layers of fabric instead of one and shorten the pattern to be a blouse instead of a dress. I also didn’t use a zipper because the crepe chiffon is quite easy to squeeze through.
It was quite an easy project besides from cutting the chiffon which is always a nightmare.

BTW the pattern can be downloaded from http://www.burdastyle.de/schnittmuster/schnitte-aus-dem-heft/burda-style-12-2009/kleid_pid_91_4238.html

    Fabulous! It reminds me something from Greece, I don’t know why, but the lightness and delicacy still hold my mind into that kind of association.

    That’s really classy, very good idea of using two layers. Nicely done.

      thanks! I used a bias strip for the neckline, and finished the sleeves and hem with my (beloved) overlock machine set on a decoration stitch
