This sleeveless shift has front neckline tucks and skirt tucks and is finished with a matching belt. The pattern is #111 dress from Burda 11/2008.
I made a few bodice alterations mainly in the back to reduce ease in width and length, as I have an erect posture.
Because I was using a semi-sheer fabric, I inserted underlining, and made the lining with a neck/armhole facing.
I have posted additional notes and images on my blog
Silk chiffon/viscose burnout fabric
Take off with pleats, cut-outs, insets, and futuristic prints.
