I made my first Heidi. I love this pattern, I think it’s almost too simple (to make) yet very charming. Since the fabric was very lacy and too sheer, I couldn’t put the pockets to the dress. I omitted the lining with the same reason as pockets, but put narrow facings to the neckline and the armholes instead. I wasn’t sure about the ribbons on the belt to my dress (they are very nice on the one from BurdaStyle, though), but am kinda happy with the result (about the ribbons) in the end. Overall I am very pleased with what I have done to the dress. I’ll definitely have those pretty pockets next time though!
