Description

I bought this colorful jersey in Copenhagen, and I thought it would be perfect for a summer dress. I have used pattern #110 Burda 02/2013. I had to shorten the strap for the shoulder a little because it was a bit too long for me. I like the the skirt of the dress and I think it’s nice with two different shoulderstraps :)

    Great dress, nice fabric. Looks awesome on you. I traced out a similar top before we left, but couldn’t decide what fabric to use for it. Now I have a better idea, thanks to your dress. :-)
