Description

My first project!
The pattern was free from the Burda Fashion website, but the link is broken now sorry.
I followed the pattern except for minor adjustments.
I had to put up with a machine that would break halfway through a stitch, and got to experience how much fun elastic is to thread through casing againandagain when you let go of it accidently :|
I meant to make it a bit longer, so for this one i think it will mostly be worn with stockings.

Very dodgy pics, I was just keen to publish my first dress ever made!

    it’s really really cute! you could also wear this over skinny jeans/khakis, or leggings instead of stockings… you did great on your first dress!

    Congrats on your first dress! I downloaded this pattern last week, but I’m a little scared to sew with elastic… but this looks so great I think I’ll just have to give it a go :)
