Description

The dress is based on a burda pattern, as I was running out of white fabric I had to cut the pattern into pieces and add the strawberry fabric. I am very proud about the finishes, however althought the fabric is beautiful it’s not that easy to work with as it frays all over so the turnover is not speacially neat. As well I should say that in my opinion strawberries don’t match exactly the concept, I find it makes it look childish…. What’s your opinion?

    I would say that the strawberries are “whimsical;” perfectly nice for a casual summer dress…

    I think the side panals have brought this dress from pretty to lovely. xx

    Strawberries are not my thing but I adore your dress, I love simple cuts and they are soo bang on trend. You did a good job and sometimes I find myself adding little bits and pieces to things that are only leftovers and wouldn’t make a whole outfit in their own.
