Description

I made this dress using a pattern from Burda magazine 11/2009. I actually made this way back in december, but it feels a bit more appropriate now in the summertime. I followed the pattern, just ignored the arms.

Material Notes

Printed cotton (thrifted), elastic

    Lovely! The sleeveless variation looks much better! Did you also make it shorter?

      Thank you! Yeah, maybe I made it a little shorter. The piece of fabric I found was rather small.

      Thank you! It was kind of a question of not having enough fabric, but it turned out well. That´s the trouble with thrifted fabric, there is not always enough for what you want to do.
