    aha, thanks a lot for your answer!

    I might try this dress for autumn if I don’t get around to it now. At the moment I cannot decide which pattern, which fabric, which style … so maybe it’s better to leave the scissors untouched ;)) best wishes

      thanks! ;) um, to be honest I don’t know exactly how this fabric is called, but it’s something very close to light-weight crepe.

    super, dvinare! looks like the perfect dress indeed.

    May I ask how tall you are? I’ve got the pattern and I’d love to make it too but at 160 cm I always seem to get ‘swept up’ in wide dresses.

      thank you!
      I am also not so tall, only 8 cm taller than you, so I guess the dress would look similar on you ;) I also made some adjustments, around the waist it was too wide for me.

      thank you, Hanneke, nice to here from you! Sorry but my dutch is not so good. I came to Amsterdam for my studies year and a half ago. And picture was made just outside the place where I live, in science park, it’s in Amsterdam Oost :)

    That’s a very beautiful dress, congratulation! I love the fabric and what may look like delicate flowers, it looks very nice with your grey coat.
