Description

This is my dress for my daughter birthday tea party. It is made out of one of my “treasure fabrics”- those few pieces that my dear Balulya (grandmother) had brought from Germany after the WWII. Babulya said it would be good for a hause robe. I don’t really like robes but I sure do like dresses. May have to wear scarf over it in public ;) The pattern is from burda N 5/2013

    Wow, what a great story about the fabric- that makes it even more special! Looks like you did a beautiful job. Not everyone could pull this look off so successfully, it looks great on you!

      Thank you, I thought it took some time to drape it but other than that it doesn’t take much time to make.

    Lovely dress….I so love this pattern but very hesitant to give it a try because I would not have no support since I have lots of boobs and cant wear it without a bra.

      Kisses, that area was my concern also. The dress did stretch some after I have worn it twice. I am not sure what is the issue, could be my fabric. I plan to work some more on it, to get rid of the “extra” couple centimeters.

    Dreamy, just dreamy. This kind of result justifies every effort and time spent on the project and motivate others to do so, at least in my opinion.
