Underdress no 109 and wrap overdress no 133 from Burda 04/2011. I used a coral coloured linen for the underdress, which makes up really quickly, and a light spotty patterned cotton voile for the wrap overdress. The wrap dress has french seams and a double turned hem and front edge. I didn’t like the way the pocket instructions were, so instead of 2 this dress only has one, but the egdes are all enclosed, and I didn’t topstitch onto the front of the dress. It was not complicated to make, there was just rather a lot of fabric! I think it’s gorgeous!
Now all we need is for a last burst of summer so that daughter no 2 can get some wear out of it!
