Dress with an interesting cut from Burda Style Magazine. The fabric is an amazing wool challis in ivory and I entirely lined the dress for comfort. Since the fabric is wool, I also added 3/4 sleeves so that I would wear the dress in winter. Adding sleeves was NOT a walk in the park given the neckline of the dress. I think I did a reasonable job of it. I also modified the skirt pattern so that it would fall just below the knee.
