I had lots of left-over red cotton, so I thought I’d make a trial dress. I used the skirt half of the Heidi dress, which I love for the pockets! The top half is the pattern that has kindly been provided by Miasu. ‘Contour Bust Dress and tute’ .
The back closes with a centred zip (which i sewed in the wrong way round TWICE! and nearly threw a tantrum trying to remove!) and the I’ve just added the ribbon strap to stop it looking so plain.
Originally I planned to sew the Heidi dress, but after seeing other Burda members gorgeous creations I found the bodice of the dress to be too formal for me! It didn’t take long to stick these two patterns together but the bodice is abit strange on me!
