My jersey addiction goes on, I cannot stop!
I liked this dress in the burda magazin and also here in the forum there were some nice projects.
I made it of a quite light rayon jersey and for this reason I had to double the back skirt,
otherwise it would be too sheer.
I think for the same reason of the jersey beeing too light, the 2 pleats in front were flagging unflattering so I sewed them a few cm in the side seam.
But I´m still not totally happy with them, because I have to arrange them all the time.
I suppose for this dress some more stable jersey is needed.
I´ve also seen in the pictures that the back waist sits too low, maybe because of the weight of the double skirt???
One thing is sure: for this dress you really need high heels, otherwise it makes you rather wide…
Anyway, I like it and I want to try it in combination with other colours too :-)
