Oh, how I love it… And I loved making it :)
The only problem is that it is not my age-appropriate :(
It is based on Wide Sleeved Dress No.112 from BurdaStyle magazine 09/2011. However there are some variations in my project:
I did not sew pockets as I see absolutely no point in them.
I also did two lines of close zigzag stitches on the front of the dress, as straight stitches looked scruffy. I would recommend to keep front as a whole as any sort of stitching would divert attention from sleeves, and they are AWESOME!!!
It also seems like a good idea to wear this dress with a belt.
