between summer and autumn

Somewhere, Curre...






When it was so hot I needed a dress that wouldn’t touch my skin too much —> no sleeves, low armholes, not tight

I used a pattern from the burda magazine but changed the back because I want to be able to wear something underneath that doesn’t have crossed straps or a racerback. For the skirt part I just used a gathered rectangle and added a pocket in the seam. Mh, seems I only left the front bust part the way it was.

Material Notes

floral cotton from the fabric market

    It’s lovely and great photos – which issue Burda did the pattern come from?

    this dress is just lovely, and i sympathize with your need as I’m experiencing the most hot and humid summer ever (!) here in oh so sunny Tel aviv.
