Description

I found this pattern in a Scandinavian sewing magazine 01/2011, and it’s very easy to sew.
I adjusted the pattern with making a black line around the neck since I’ve used black for the waist.
I didn’t want to have seam in front or back and think it was a good choice. Since the V neck in front is very deep I have to use a top underneath :) This dress is similar to an earlier project I made; www.burdastyle.com/projects/my-desigual-dress

    very impressive Ellen ,I ‘m trying to think up something for the next year primary school reunion that’s why i browse on Burdastyle’s member projects …the fabrics with patterns of the kind are expensive for the moment …but i make my wishes for the clearances ..by the way i saw on my facebook page that you are or were featured member …Great congratulations It made me proud that a featured member had praised a project of mine:)

      Thanks a lot for you kind and lovely words Constanteffort! I do love making retro dresses of old garments – maybe you can make it a try… This is useful if you don’t want to spend so much on fabric and patterns ;-)

    Looks great on you! Nice placement of the black, and good idea to leave out the center seams. You wear this dress well!
