Description

To make a new dress every Easter was my intention many years. At last this year I decided not to postpone and yet establish this tradition for me:-) So here it is. A simple dress made from the fabric with bright flower print.
I chose this pattern at once when saw it in the magazine and the fabric was bought purposely about the same time. The dress is comfortable, the cut-out is exactly what I want and I like the design of the sleeves very much: they look vintage and create a nice line of the decollete.
I’d rather decrease the dress a little in the waist to get better fitting: after making top-stitches along the joining seam it stretched a little, but I think to make and use a thin belt would be good enough to correct this tiny defect:-)

    I thought I didn’t like this model but as always you made a much better version than burda. This pattern is perfect for your bodytype. Plus you used a really wonderful fabric-the colors are so lovely! I think that this dress is the most beautiful you have posted here until now. I’m jealous and I want the same dress immediately-do you think that this would be nice on an apple shaped lady like me? Happy Easter to you, I’m sure you will have a great time wearing this beauty. Did I tell you how much I like your dress:P?

      Thank you very much:-)) I think the tulip-skirt shapes any figure in the right way. And the bodice is very flattering and nice to refuse from the pleasure to try this easy and nice pattern and, besides, you, of course, can substitute the skirt for your favourite if are not sure as for the suggested:-)
      Happy Easter to you and your family, too!
