Description

So impressed by Elpida’s beautiful and clever dress, I borrowed her idea of mixing materials. I have made a blouse out of a scarf before and since I still have more scarves, the idea of using up one of them appealed me. It was not difficult sewing different weight fabrics, I am a bit worried how the dress drapes. It looks alright on the pictures to me but does it to others?
The pattern is for tall and I am a petite. I adjusted the pattern (thanks to Elpida again, she replied my question I posted) following Burda’s instructions and forum.

    Wow! I love this version! Much more colorful than mine and I really appreciate that you “dared” this fabric mixing. I know how difficult it is to combine especially printed fabrics !

      Thank you Tzai for your comment. Yes indeed. This one turned out to be a bit more casual look. The other one I have made before in solid looked more classic.
