Description

I knew it was going to sew this dress when I saw it on Burda magazine in July, however, I imagined some alterations on it, the alteration of the strips of contrasting color and cross them in the back to remove the collar Halter and have more restraint to prevent the dress from sliding on my back. I´m delighted with this pattern, it’s soooo feminine! I love the vintage look of this pattern!

Material Notes

1.75 meters of cotton for the dress, 0.25 meters for blue fabric strips, an invisible zipper, 0.50 meters of white cotton to line the bodice

    Your dress looks amazing. I really like the cross-back alteration, and the contrasting stripes. Nice job!
