Blast from the past summer dress

Added Aug 13, 2010

Enschede, Nether...






I used pattern # 112 from Burda magazine Nov 2007. I was inspired by postwar era so I added two drapped straps at the armpit level changing the cleveage shape. I also added a petticot. This pattern is made for tall women so I had to make it shorter too.

Material Notes

2 mts batist with lace




Garment Type
