Based on Burda Swing dress pattern 08/2012 #133.
Didn’t plan to sew a dress for summer, but when I saw this fabric… Couldn’t do anything to myself – just had to try the pattern.
I sew on something like a belt. And refused sleeves – when I stiched them – didn’t like the view. :)
This is my 2nd dress and for now it was the most difficult project I’ve ever sew.
It turned out quite beautiful, so I’m gonna wear this dress at the Lindyhop Christmas event. Yeeehaaah!
