Sf Bay Area, Cal...
Inspired by Burda 02-2008-124 and changed the front neckline to a “V”. It turns out looking like a sofa. Need to refine fabric-choosing skills! Anyway, I just made this dress to practice pattern drafting, dart sewing, and use up fabric inventory. It is lined with white cotton batiste. It’s a good practice before advancing to wools & silks and more complicated designs. Blogged more on http://littlecottondresses.blogspot.com
