Description

That was the last moment to make this summer dress and still enjoy it enough this year. It’s spectacular with this giant skirt and the sunny color. I used pattern 149 from Burda 04/1994, simplified a bit.

Material Notes

Cotton batiste with embroidered pattern, around 6 meters, 10 plastic green flower-button, 2m of green twine, 3m of green piping.

    The dress is stunning! It reminds me a bit of Scarlett O’Hara ;)
