Description

I used the same pattern as my cost disaster, but this dress was a breeze! It’s a shift dress pattern from late 1960s, with raglan sleeves and lovely shoulder seam detail. I have shown a picture of the sleeve pattern to show the shoulder seam. It’s really nice. The dress is lined. Will probably make this again in more summertime colours.

Material Notes

Paul smith cotton from cotton mill.co .uk

    Hallo, what a lovely dress! It fits your shoulders and neck, absolutely perfect! Have just been browsing through Burdas Dress Patterns, hoping to find that very same model… No luck, so the search continues :-)

    Very lovely dress – I also love neckline and sleeves <3 Heidi, Denmark
