I loved the Burda version of the Celestina (with the 3/4 sleeves) and so i decided to create my own. It’s a great dress for winter.
I think i like it, but i’m not sure yet. Maybe I’ll be wearing this to nice outings.. :)
I followed the pattern to exact, except that I used another patterns sleeves & I lengthened the ties as previous members had said they wished they were longer.
The pattern instructions were written very well.
The last pic shown is of Blair in a Gossip Girl episode, cause i had her dress in the back of my mind while making this.
Linen mix? Its quite tough.
