Description

Bought this fabric for a skirt ,but when spotted this pattern ,made sure is enough for the dress , I am a big lover of a cowl neck . As a result my dress have got short sleeves and is shorter than orginal pattern.
I used fabric cotton suiting with a bit of strech, which is fantastic to wear.

    I don’t remember this dress in burda!?! Your dress makes me, …I don’t know. Perhaps cry! There is something about that silhouette that is so feminine and mixed with a more masculine pattern … I love love LOVE your dress!! I just read that your fabric has stretch also…. Amazing ..love that …so great sitting at the office all day….love it!

    I love this and how you cut the plaid on the bias. What pattern did you use?

    I have this pattern as well, but the model photo doesn’t at all justice to the splendid design, your pics are much better! Think I will make this dress too!
