Description

I made this dress based on pattern #106 Burda 06/2010, but wanted to make the skirt different since I have used jersey, and then I didn’t need to use a zipper in the side either. As decoration I used ribbon with stitching. The pics is taken in Copenhagen ;)

    I love everything about this dress! The fabric is beautiful and the cut and style if the dress is very flattering on you.

    Beautiful dress. Wonederful print is arranged very well and I like the choice of the skirt: it makes the figure more fragile ( to be honest I don’t know if gathering around waist is worth doing ever:-))

      Thanks! I do like this style of skirt very much, and gathering around waist is no good, specially for jersey… :-)

      It’s the summer flirt dress page 2 Ellen. Mines a halter neck from a vintage reproduced pattern from the 50’s. Yours reminded me of the placement of plain fabric on the bodice of mine x
