Description

Looks to me that Danielle is the most used dress pattern here, and I can understand why. Personally I made two of them! For this one I used some very fine light cotton, the bodice is made from double layer of fabric. I’ve changed pattern a little: I made the dress shorter so it’s actually some kind of tunic, altered the sleeves and I used covered buttons instead of zipper. Also I made back skirt parts from one piece instead of two. I’m very pleased with the outcome, can wait for the summer!

Material Notes

Fine cotton, covered buttons

    Love the buttons in place of a zipper, so delicate and romantic! Perfect choice for such a feminine fabric. You’re making me crave summer, too!
