"Easy fashion" dress

Added Oct 6, 2013

Nedre Vats, Norway






This is a very easy dress to make – it’s based on pattern #6 Burda Easy Fasion 02/2011.
I made the dress in the same colors as in the pattern, so it looks like I’m from Sweden now :)
I have used satin in different color as shown, and 2 buttons on the shoulder for decoration, that’s it :)

Material Notes





Spring, Summer
Garment Type
Classic, Evening Wear

    Your simple things are always very nice and suit you well. (Besides, you look like my countrywoman – we have the same flag’s colours, too :-)
