Description

This dress is based on pattern #113 Burda 02/2008. I decided to use linen, but it was recommended cotton satin with crosswise stretch. Anyway this dress has become one of my favorites because the linnen is superb in the summertime :)

    Linen is my summer favourite, too. It always looks well and is a good choice both for your pattern and the weather:-) I like the print: thanking to it – the dress is easy to combine with other things whenever you want and is good for many occasions. And you are right omitting a belt – it looks more elegant without it.

      Thanks! Even if the linen isn’t stretchy, it feels a little bit stretchy anyway :) and it’s more comfortable without a belt..

      That’s true – it’s comfortable with the ruffle bottom :)
