Description

skirt is from bombshell dress (5/2011, mod. 122)
top is another burda design (3/2011, mod. 108)
altered, to achieve really low cut v back
..
plaid may not be the best choice of fabric
cause the skirt draped part made it impossible
to match the print
but i like it anyways
..
my sewing machine broke some time ago
so i sewed entire dress using only my new serger
and only used sewing machine for zipper
(my boyfriend managed to fix the sewing machine,
but by the time that happened, dress was 95% done)
..

    Nice! I like the use of plaid and the low cut back is sexy without being over the top!

    Beautiful dress! I love plaid but I’m always weary if matching it up. Well done!

      :) thank you.. i actually love working with plaid or stripes or gingham, in my case all the lines help me to match pattern pieces better (well, when i want to match them hehe, not like in this dress)

    Nice dress, the open back works really well with the otherwise quite classic and concealing style. And I love that banana brooch!
