I’ve found a piece of this great cotton fabric, length only about 130 cm.. One half was with polka dots, and the other half was with these wider stripes.. I wanted to make a simple dress, preferably with long sleeves, and let the fabric do it’s magic.. For bodice I used pattern 133 from Burda 12/2012. Because I didn’t have that much fabric, I improvised the skirt. I was lucky with making this dress, everything matched as I imagined.. Sleeves are only with polka dots, and stripes from bodice nicely continue to the skirt.. Also, I wasn’t lazy and added the pockets.. In the end it’s a nice autumn dress..
