Description

I found this pattern in a German magazine, Stitch & Sew 02/2010, and thought this light jersey was perfect to use. I made a drawstring at the hem and that made the dress complete ;)

      Thanks a lot dear friend! Since I didn’t like the wide of hem I thought it was perferct. When you make the hem on jersey with twin-needle then you also have the tunnel for drawstring, so I had to try it ;)
