I’ve been wanting to make an autumn dress like this, which is worn with a turtle neck or a shirt beneath it for quite some time now, and finally, here it is! :)
The dress is Mod.135 from Burda Magazine 10/1997 – a great issue with so many projects which satisfy my taste. The original dress is an ankle length but I prefer shorter ones. I also made changes concerning the front buttoning, so instead of the back zipper I put 3 metal buttons and 2 more on the strips just below the bust line instead of the original fastening buckles.
