Denim Dress - From A-Line to Shift Dress

Added May 9, 2014

by AnitaS7

Nrw, Germany






I want a denim dress, so i try this pattern, but my fabric is too heavy on my journey started. At the first I unsew only the back skirt and cut some wide, but this was still too much, so I unstich in the front and back.

So to lose the dress all the wide and it is now a SHIFT DRESS
and I like it much more than the first exemplar.

I also love the orange edging. It make so beautiful woman silhouette!

It is without lining, because the denim fabric is strechy and I want to keep the flexibility.
More about the Dress how to – in my Blog

Pattern from the Silk-Jacket is Burdastyle
