I’ve just finished this dress and I’m really pleased with it. Its from a Burda pattern and really easy to do. A really nice pleat at the bust area ( i normally have to alter the bust as I’m miniture there!). The pattern has buttons at the back but i put a zip in instead. The pattern is for a long ankle length dress, but i made it knee length.
Cotton from a fabric warehouse, cost about three pounds total. Cotton with a sort of batik dye effect.
