Description

DU-PLI-CA-TE!!! Seeing life in Aubergine!

I used the pattern of the 09.2012 Burda shift dress. I already made this dess in prussian blue.

About the fabric: I brought this fabric from Ghana 2 years ago in some Kind of Aubergine-Boysenberry color. I knew exactly what I wanted to do with this fabric when I got it, but I always wanted to have a complete look before sewing (yeahh I needed the little matching shoes to go with it) .

Slight little problem… The fabric was too small.. so the dress… was too short :-/

    Welll it’s a LITTLE short but I love it! Great color (especially on you) and great styling! I like the sleeves especially. Okay this may have pushed me over the edge to try this pattern! Yours is great!

    Thanks so much! Well regarding the edging, I had not planned to add it. But the fabric being very short I had no seam allowance. Anyway it seems to work well :))
