What a light summery dress for the hot, hazy and humid days of summer here in the Big Smoke. I used only jersey for this dress – no chiffon as suggested – and it still looks lovely. Love the shirred under-bodice with the midriff accentuating the waist. Please visit my blog to read more about what I did with this really cool Burda pattern – 7/2010/120 – empire waist dress from the Desert Style collection of July 2010.
1/4" elastic, tricot lining, lightweight rayon jersey, 24cm invisible zipper, thread
