Description

Printed fabric is one of my favorites – and I wanted to try pattern #109 Burda 09/2013. I choosed to make this dress in a combination with black and think it was a good choice. I had to adjust the pattern like I wanted, and I have shorten the dress a bit and the neck was too square for me so I had to make it more like a “boat” neck. I used the dress for the first time on our trip to Rome :)

    I guess the best comment is written on the dress already so all of other words are just a refrain:-) And great management with fabrics as always, how can I take a lesson?;-)
