Designer pattern from Dice Kayek, Burda 07/2011, dress nº 140.
This dress has been on my to-do list for quite a long time time but I wasn’t feeling the peplum for an everyday look. So I omitted it but kept the rest of the pattern identical.
The fit is pretty good and the classic shape makes it a very versatile dress: from daytime to party.
I dyed a beige cotton fabric I had in indigo and it was such a good idea as I really love the new colour I obtained.
More details on my blog.
medium weight cotton, hand-dyed.
lining (for the skirt part)
invisible zipper and three small button as closure.
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
