I needed something to cheer me up and I found this lovely blend, it was not too bright and I think it suits me perfectly. The fabric has a linen look. The dress is very close fitting with two back straps that are worn twisted and button from the inside. I lined the dress completely and a invisible zipper at the back.
In addition I also made a cardigan that is from the Burda March issue of this year. I modify it slightly by shortening the length and remove the tie bands and added a pearl button. The sleeves was shorten also because burda’s version was way too tall.
I was so happy with how everything came together nicely :-)
