Description

This dress is based on burda style magazine 1/2010 Cap-sleeve Mini Dress. I varied the pattern a lot.
Instead of cap sleeves I made long sleeves so I can wear this dress in upcoming fall and winter.
I tightened the waist and omitted the back-zipper, that’s no problem because the fabric is very strechy.
I cut the front in two pieces and added two short zippers as eye-catcher. I locked the back of the zippers with two pieces of extra fabric. In the end I added an elastic waistband for a better fit.
