Grey Dolman Dress

Added Feb 7, 2014

This dress was supposed to have long sleeves but since it was the first time I was trying this pattern I ended up making the sleeves too tight and couldn’t put my arms through them. I had to cut the sleeves short but I think it worked out well. I love this dress because it’s really versatile. For more pics visit my blog:

    Thank you everyone for the kind words. Every time I think about giving up sewing I get a little sign that tells me I should keep going:).

    oh funny how sometimes mistakes are fortuitous! i actually think your short sleeve version is better balanced silhouette than the original Burda long sleeved one. really like the fabric and color you choose – has a simple elegance to it.

    Nice dress! It looks like a great dress to just slip on and go anywhere!
