Charlotte Hall, ...
For this dress, I used pattern #111 C from Burda magazine 7/2010. The pattern was in petite sizing, which is perfect for me. I only had to make adjustments in the hip region for the dress.
I’m going to California to visit family and friends in a week, and I wanted to have a “summer worthy” dress (But yes, in case you were wondering, I was making a Zeppelin allusion in my title. ;)).
Originally, I was going to use one color for the whole dress, but I didn’t have enough of the aqua knit. So, I went through almost every color combination imaginable, and after hours of agonizing over my decision, I settled on a grey knit for the straps.
If you are interested in more information, and/or more pictures, please take a look over at my blog.
Thanks for looking!
