I needed a simple and light dress for somer, but with cardigan and tights also in cooler seasons. I decided to use this pattern, that looks like italien summer for me. I altered the front and worked it with buttons instead of a zipper in the back. The fit isn’t the best – it’s a bit to wide and need a belt for a good waistline. This dress is a first try of the pattern – I plan to do one more that looks more classic. Than I will make some alterations for a better fit.
