Description

I had mood for long, fantasy inspired, dresses for some time, but it’s not easy to buy one, so I decided to sew it. It’s first dress I ever sew, so I’m quite happy with how it came out.
I used wedding dress pattern from Burda 3/2011, with some details modified: It’s one layer only, skirt is more pleated, I added additional fold under bust and resign from the scarf around neckline.

      Thank you. As a prove I can reveal, that sleeves were not supposed to have any puffs and this lace tape around neckline was added to hide some of my mistakes.
