Description

I used some butterfly – print cotton to make this dress which is a mash-up of two patterns from the Burda Magazines.
I used the bodice from “http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/022011-dress-with-gathered-rectangle-skirt-and-cap-sleeves”
And the skirt pattern from “http://www.burdastyle.com/pattern_store/patterns/072011-v-neck-lbd”

I made navy cotton piping and used it on the waist and around the pockets to add a little contrast.

    This is a very pretty dress. I like the way you combined 2 patterns and the navy piping is a lovely finish.
